Is it possible to pay an admission of guilt fine while out on bail?

You are asking a question about an 'admission of gulit fine.' There is not a correct term, or you are combining several things. An admission of guilt is just that -- you have been charged with a crime and you are admitting that you committed the crime. If the Court sentence includes fines or jail time, that is a totally separate matter. If you are on bail for a previous alleged crime, and you are rearrested for a different crime, when you are arraigned this fact will be brought to the court's attention. The purpose of bail is not punishment, but rather to seek to ensure the person will return to court.

Explain the difference between a confession and a admission?

An admission is not the same as a confession.The act of admitting to something is, any voluntary acknowledgment, statement orassertion made by a party to a suit or criminal prosecution that certain facts inconsistent with the party's claims are true. An admission may be express, such as a written or verbal statement by a person concerning the truth, or it may be implied by a person's conduct. Admissions are used primarily as a method of discovery, as a pleading device, and as evidence in a trial.A confession is an acknowledgment of guilt in a criminal case. In criminal law a confession is an admission of guilt by the accused party. It must be freely and voluntarily made after the accused is made aware of his/her rights.

Is an admission always an acknowledgement of guilt?

lol.... the key word in this question is "always." It makes for a good discussion and debate question and earns a lot of defense attorneys a lot of money arguing the subject in court but in 99&9/10% of cases - unless the admission was forced, tortured, tricked or somehow coerced out of the defendant, it is a very good indicator of the perpetrator's guilt, and judge's and juries give great weight to a truly voluntary confession.
