(a) Fine— a monetary penalty associated with an offense imposed as part of a judgment and commitment. There are two types of fines.
(1) Committed fine— a monetary penalty imposed with a condition of imprisonment until the fine is paid.
(2) Non-committed fine— a monetary penalty which has no condition of confinement imposed.
(b) Costs— Monetary costs of the legal proceeding which the court may levy. Imposition of costs is similar in legal effect to imposition of a fine. The court may also impose costs with a condition of imprisonment.
