The Ross County Probate and Juvenile Court is teaming up with the Ohio Attorney General's Office to collect about $450,000 in fees and fines.

A court official tells 10TV News that some of the fines are more than a year overdue.

In about a month, the court will send a list of people with outstanding fines or fees to the Ohio Attorney General’s office.

The state will then send notices to those individuals warning them that if they do not pay their debts in full, the state will seize tax refunds and any lottery winnings.

The state will also add a 35 percent fee.

The court is encouraging anyone with outstanding debts to pay them now.
