Fines, Fees & Restitution

Paying Restitution

Both juvenile and adult probationers may be ordered to pay restitution as a condition of probation. Restitution includes court fees, fines, and costs for detention or commitment in a juvenile institution. Restitution is also paid to victims to cover costs such as property damage, replacement and medical treatment.

Responsible Parties

  • Adults on probation are responsible for paying restitution.
  • Youths and their parents are accountable for the costs of restitution ordered by the court for the crimes committed. Guardians whose guardianship began before the convicted youth was 10 years of age are also held accountable for the payment of restitution.

Collection Procedure

An order is made in court regarding the amount of fines, fees, and restitution to be paid by the youth and/or parents.
