Table of Contents
Effective July 1, 2022, monthly probation supervision fees, administrative probation fees, and victim services surcharges (collectively “monthly probation fees”) have been eliminated by Section 104 of St. 2022, c. 126, which repealed all but the first paragraph of G.L. c. 276, § 87A. See Section 197 of St. 2022, c. 126 (establishing July 1, 2022, effective date).
Accordingly, it is hereby ORDERED that no monthly probation fees be assessed for any period beginning July 1, 2022. Pursuant to my authority as set forth in G.L. c. 211B, § 9, in the event monthly probation fees have been assessed for any period beginning July 1, 2022, those fees are hereby remitted. Paid monthly probation fees assessed for the month of July 2022, and after, will be automatically refunded in accordance with a process established by the Trial Court.
This Order does not apply to monthly probation fees that were due on or before June 30, 2022. Those fees remain due and payable, unless otherwise ordered by a judge.
