Restitution, Fines and Fees
What it is: The amount of outstanding restitution owed to victims and uncollected court-ordered fines and fees. The graphs below are given to show how long court-ordered restitution, fines, and fees have been outstanding. Column percentages represent the proportion of all money owed based on when the court mandate was given. For example, a value of 5% in the "Over 3 years" column signifies that 5% of all the money owed to the court was ordered more than 3 years ago. A plea in abeyance is available in criminal cases in district court and does not apply to juvenile court cases.
How it is measured: Accounts receivable for restitution, fines and fees are summarized quarterly.
Why it is important: Assuring that victims receive awarded restitution and court-ordered fines and fees are collected are important administrative functions. Effective collection practices help make victims whole and enforce sanctions ordered by the court.
