We have had the same juvenile judge since the 80's. That alone should tell you something. Expect the same corrupt buddy system that allowed the county's sheriff's office to become what it has. Pay your fine and you will be alright. Fight it, or be slow on your payments and expect this matter to drag out over years and cost thousands upon thousands.

I was in the juvenile system in McMinn when I was a child because I saw a fight at a skating rink and a cop put me in the back seat along with three other people who were just watching. I was thirteen. Guilty without any evidence, while the boys who were fighting said we were not involved. A $250 fine turned into 4 years of probation and thousands of dollars for my parents. Expect weekly appointments, weekly payments, and to be violated if you ever get close to paying all the fines.

Moved to Cleveland and transferred my probation, was off probation at my second meeting. The PO there didn't understand my file or how I was violated for stupid reasons like missed appointments when my record showed I made the appointment, or non-payment when we paid what was required, just paid once a month instead of little payments every week... I don't understand how Larry Rhodes has been allowed to monopolize this and turn it into his own private piggy bank. It will come down to his word versus yours and I bet a dollar you can figure out whose side the court takes.

In short, they make you stay on probation so they can collect probation fees, or under the chance you do something else wrong they can stick you with even heavier fines. Just keep every tiny bit of paperwork and get receipts for every payment made. Then don't expect that to be enough.
