Nearly a year after they were sentenced on felony charges of unsworn falsification and theft, Alaskan Bush People star Billy Brown and his son Joshua are returning to TV in an epic comeback. But their shady pasts could catch up to them!

The family patriarch, 64, and second eldest child "Bam Bam," 32, still have not paid their hefty fines after an Alaskan judge ordered the pair to house arrest and monetary restitution for lying on official government forms in a quick cash scheme, can exclusively reveal.

According to Alaskan court records obtained by Radar, Josh's fine was originally $5,000 but adjusted to $2,000. Meanwhile, the judge demanded Billy pay a whipping $10,000 for his crimes.

Both payments are due in full on January 11, 2017, but neither defendant has made a dent in the sum, despite having had nearly a year to do so.

"We have not received anything," a spokesperson for Juneau Trial Court confirmed.

If the reality stars refuse to pay by the deadline, the court will alert a government collection agency.

They initially avoided jail with a last-minute electronic monitoring deal — but could they eventually end up behind bars?

As Radar extensively reported, the father/son duo was accused of scamming the Alaskan government out of approximately $27,000 by claiming they lived in the state when they actually dwelled in the lower 48.

Despite copping a plea deal, Billy has maintained his innocence.
