Description

Since 2010, Philadelphia has embarked on a massive criminal justice debt collection, with the city's courts attempting to collect on an estimated $1.5 billion dollars in old debts: unpaid bail, fees and fines that date back to the early 1970s. “The Cost of Doing Time” is 23-min radio documentary, reported by Amanda Aronczyk for the BBC World Service, exploring the complexity of criminal court debt and its collection.
