A trial court may not impose a court fee that is not authorized under the law.

Defendant appealed his conviction on three different counts. Defendant argues that the trial court erred by imposing a $60 fee for each count Defendant was convicted of. The Court held that the trial court plainly erred because Defendant's offenses occurred after the passage of a law that removed the trial court's ability to impose those fees. Reversed.
