Restitution (Compensation for Loss)

Contact us

Restitution is the money a judge orders the offender to pay the victim to compensate the victim for losses related to the crime. Restitution is part of the offender's sentence or disposition and can be ordered in both adult and juvenile cases after the offender is found guilty or pleads guilty. The amount of restitution the judge orders depends on the victim's crime-related expenses and the offender's ability to pay.
