May 2, 2022 – In re A.R. (2nd Dist., Div. 8, B312476)

The Court of Appeal affirms the juvenile court’s victim restitution order made more than 5 years after appellant’s admissions but while appellant was still on probation. The court reasons that although WIC 730.6 requires that a victim restitution order be made at the time of the sentencing hearing unless the amount of the loss cannot be ascertained at that time, the statue does not prevent a juvenile from agreeing to a later determination of restitution, as appellant did here. The court also finds that the delay did not violate due process and that substantial evidence supports the amount of restitution ordered.
