Notwithstanding any other law, in a municipal or justice court, if a defendant is sentenced to pay a fine, a fee, assessment or incarceration costs and the court finds the defendant is unable to pay all or part of the fine, fee, assessment or incarceration costs, the court may order the defendant to perform community restitution in lieu of the payment for all or part of the fine, fee, assessment or incarceration costs. The amount of community restitution shall be equivalent to the amount of the fine, fee or incarceration costs by crediting any service performed at a rate of ten dollars per hour.
