The Judge ordered restitution, but when will I be paid?
The Courts frequently order restitution as a condition of probation or parole. What this means is that the Defendant has the term of their probation period in which to pay the restitution and any other money owed. Typically, their probation officer will place them on a monthly payment schedule based on the Defendant's salary, outstanding debts, living situation, etc. The payments will be made to the Clerk of the District Court and then dispersed to the appropriate parties. At times, Defendants are unable to pay despite our best legal and tactical efforts.
