Description

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 can also be designated to local bonding agencies as desired. Additionally, the bill states that any collection fees for delinquent restitution payments are to be paid by the defendant. Any restitution installment plan payments more than 90 days in default are to be voided and sent to collection; however, the defendant does retain the option of entering into a new payment plan.
