State Says Man Doesn’t Have To Repay $17K, Will Keep Billing Him For It Anyway

They say that some mistakes you make will haunt you the rest of your life (like that ZIMA logo tattoo on the small of my back). They should add that mistakes made by the state of New Jersey will also apparently cling to you like stink on a skunk.
