Apr. 27, 2022 – People v. Czirban (6th Dist., H048989)

After the decedent was killed while driving one of defendant’s bulldozers, defendant’s business was investigated, and defendant was convicted of various business-related offenses and placed on probation. The Court of Appeal rejects defendant’s argument that a restitution award imposed as a condition of probation improperly included restitution for attorney’s fees deducted from the survivors’ benefit paid to the decedent’s partner pursuant to the Workers’ Compensation Act.
