Restitution Program
 
Juveniles, on a consent decree or formal probation, who owe restitution to a victim(s) have the opportunity to apply to the Court or Juvenile Court Services for inclusion in the Restitution Program. Upon acceptance into the program and contingent on the completion of any court ordered community service, the juvenile may perform community service at an approved location and receive a minimum wage credit for each hour completed. Those credits will then be converted into actual dollars from the Restitution Fund and sent to the victim(s).
