Individuals cannot "put" something on someone else's credit report. Judgments are part of the public record, and as such, are the subject of routine searches by individuals who re-sell this type of information to Credit Reporting Agencies.

In most states, a judgment must be recorded twice to ensure that it attachs to any real property owned by the defendant.

No. It is not. There is no such thing as a debtor prison in the U.S. You might get sued in a civil court and have a judgment put on your credit report which will negatively affect your ability to obtain credit. But you won't go to jail or get arrested if you don't pay your balance. No. It is not.
