How sad and embarrassing for her and for them to say where she works at her firm. I hope she doesn't lose her job over this. It was probably a bench warrant - it's shocking how many people have these for fines and what not. In my county judges issue bench warrants for civil matters as well as criminal. Some people don't even know they have one out for them.

That's awful. I wonder if she even knew about the fine because I'm sure she would have paid the $85 if she did.

So how much will this $85 fine end up costing the state of FL if she has to stay in jail till Thursday as article implies? I realize she committed a crime but really?

Also, does trip insurance cover this

No, it doesn't. Most trip insurance policies that I've seen cover subpoenas and court orders to appear provided you are not involved in the litigation. I take this to mean that you are not, in essence, the defendant.

In another lifetime I practiced law and I've wondered whether trip insurance will cover my trip cancellation if I were summoned to court for one reason or another. I guess I should have bought "cancel for any work reason" coverage...

Seriously?!? Could they not just send her a reminder letter in the mail now that they have her current address? To think they took officers off the streets to arrest that poor woman.

Love the comment about trip insurance

I'm happy that they were checking the list of passengers for terrorist ties and whatnot, but 22 years ago? Do our officers have nothing better going on right now? Wow!

At least they acted during debark instead of embark.

Are they implying terrorists can embark but not debark in the US?

FWIW, I'm throwing this out here, if you have an old record of almost any kind (including a DUI from 25 years ago), it's possible that Canada will not allow you entrance. Be aware of this, if you planning an Alaskan (or other Canada) cruise.

You have to apply for rehabilation status with Canada. If eligible, it can take 6 months to a year to receive. Or you can get it faster for a lot more money.

This is not something new. All passports are checked as you leave the country, and if anything is found, they mark your record and you are detained coming back into the country because they do make sure you are the one they are looking for.

Bench warrants usually don't even say why you are wanted, just that a certain city,county or state wants a 'hold' on you. It might not be for a crime, but for a failure to show up for jury duty or outstanding parking tickets, failure to complete (or get the proper release) from community service. This case is not because she stole the cigarettes, but because she didn't pay the fine.

It will now cost her a whole lot more than $85.
