Your sentence in the United States District Court provided for payment of one or more of the above type monetary penalties. The purpose of these instructions is to provide you with additional information and special requirements of these obligations. Regarding Restitution and Fines Nonpayment of Court-ordered restitution and fines is a violation of supervision which will be reported to the Court and/or Parole Commission. Noncompliance with payment may also result in the denial of leisure/recreational travel. Furthermore, you may be required to seek part-time employment, complete financial planning counseling, or reduce current expenditures. No case with unpaid monetary obligations shall reach expiration of supervision without appropriate action from the Court or Parole Commission. General Information a.

The law requires that interest be computed on all restitution and fines in excess of $2,500. Interest is computed on a daily basis at a rate equal to the rate of U.S. Treasury bills. Interest for fines is imposed for offenses committed after 12/11/87, and on all restitution imposed for
offenses committed after 4/24/96. The U.S. Attorney, Financial Litigation Unit, makes those computations. Interest applies to all restitution and fines in excess of $2,500 unless:
(1) Waived by the Court, or
(2) If paid in full within 15 days after imposed.
e. Penalties for Late Payments
(1) Delinquent Payments - Federal law provides that if the payment of a fine or restitution is more than 30 days late, you are delinquent and must pay as a penalty an amount equal to 10% of the principal amount that is delinquent.
(2) Default - Federal law provides that if payment of a fine or restitution is more than 120 days late, you are in default and must pay as a penalty an amount equal to 15% of the principal amount that is delinquent. Additionally, once a payment is in default, the entire amount of the fine and restitution, plus all penalties and interest, is due within 30 days after notification of default.
(3) Additional Penalties - If you fail to pay the restitution, fine or assessment, as well as penalties and interest, as ordered, the following additional actions may be taken:
(A) Your conditions of supervision may be modified, including the length of the term of supervision;
