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.
If the Defendant fails to pay restitution, or violates other conditions of his probation, this office will file a Motion to Revoke Probation and have the case brought back before the court. The judge will hear the violations and decide what, if any, action is appropriate.

If the person you are seeking protection from violates the order, you should call the police immediately and report it. The suspect may be arrested, and a case may be filed against them for violating the Protection From Abuse Order. You should not, however, invite the person you are seeking protection from over to your house or initiate contact. You are putting your safety in jeopardy, and you are putting that person at risk of being arrested.
If you are threatened by anyone, including an ex-spouse or ex-significant other, you need to call the police right away. An officer will respond, and take a report from you about what happened. A decision will be made later about whether that person will be formally charged or not.
If your property is recovered by the police, it is regarded as evidence. It will be held by the Riley County Police Department until it is no longer needed as evidence. Often times a photograph can be substituted and the item returned. The assigned attorney will make that decision in consultation with the victim and police.
If the defendant is convicted, it is the policy of this office to request restitution on behalf of the victim for any stolen or damaged property. However, it is the responsibility of the victim to provide the information and supporting documentation. You can do this by completing the Victim Impact Statement in its entirety and including copies of receipts, estimates, and insurance information.
