Sherwood v. Pa. Dept. of Corr.

Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court

December 6, 2021

Sherwood challenged the deductions from his inmate account for alleged outstanding fines, costs, fees, and restitution on the basis that the deductions were contrary to the various sentencing court orders in his criminal matters, were not authorized under law, and/or violated his rights under several provisions of the United States and Pennsylvania Constitutions. Respondents filed Answers and New Matter to the Amended Petition. The Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court denied Sherwood’s Motion for Summary Relief and denied Respondents’ Motions for Judgment on the Pleadings with respect to $500 restitution at issue in one case and the $200 cost pursuant to Section 7508.1(b) of the Crimes Code at issue in another case. The Court granted Respondents’ Motions for Judgment on the Pleadings as to all other claims and dismissed the Amended Petition to that extent.
