Restitution. Provides for the Commonwealth to be responsible for seeking restitution for the victim. The bill creates a system under which the clerk of court is responsible for collecting, tracking, and distributing restitution payments. This responsibility may also be delegated to local bonding agencies as desired. Additionally, the bill states that any collection fees for delinquent restitution payments shall paid by the defendant. Any restitution installment plan payments more than 40 days in default are to be voided. Read the Bill »
