A State Appeals court has told a Jefferson City judge to reconsider his order for a state prison inmate to pay almost $7300 to the state to cover part of the costs of his confinement. The Attorney General’s office had sued inmate Dane Johnson in 2009, seeking money from his prison account. Johnson told the judge he did not have enough assets to qualify to reimburse the state but the judge told Johnson to pay $7300. Johnson’s prison account which contains money earned in doing prison jobs has produced about $80 in payments. The appeals court says the Jefferson City judge made a mistake when he ruled the judgment against Johnson should stand.
