PostNo Debtors' Prisons in the US (David Duggan, USA, 02/23/18 3:28 pm)
In response to Eugenio Battaglia (23 February), there are no debtors' prisons in the United States.
The only possibility of imprisonment for failure to pay a debt is for contumacious failure to pay child support, or a fine or court fees and costs when the failure to pay is willful and there is evidence of an ability to pay--i.e., tattoos, NFL jackets.
