SUMMARY AS PASSED SENATE: (all summaries)

Restitution; form order, enforcement, noncompliance; etc. Makes numerous changes related to the repayment of court-ordered restitution, including: (i) requiring the court to enter the amount of restitution, date by which all restitution is to be paid, and the terms and conditions of repayment on a form prescribed by the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court; (ii) providing that docketing an order of restitution as a civil judgment does not prohibit the court from enforcing such order by any other available means; (iii) requiring the clerk of every circuit and district court to submit quarterly reports to the attorney for the Commonwealth and any probation agency serving the locality listing (a) all defendants with outstanding balances of court-ordered restitution and (b) all accounts where more than 90 days have passed since such account was sent to collections and no payments have been made; and (vi) removing the court's authority to impose a fine not to exceed $500 for a defendant's nonpayment of court-ordered fines, costs, restitution, forfeiture, or penalties after the defendant has entered into an installment or deferred payment agreement. As introduced, the bill is a recommendation of the Virginia State Crime Commission.
