Prison was commonplace for paupers who could not pay their debts in 16th century England. But many don't realize that, until recently, it could happen in New Jersey as well, even over tiny sums. A few examples: A man arrested for panhandling in Trenton was ordered to pay $9 in court fees he owed from a previous charge.
