In some cases (for example a theft from a retail store like walmart) the company sends a letter threatening action if a fine is not paid. This is totally different than the fees imposed by the court. If you paid the company directly the money paid does not have an impact on your criminal case (where the state is considered the aggrieved party). In general your court ordered fines must be paid to the clerk of court.
