A defendant may be ordered to pay the victim for damages occurred as a result of the crime committed. The Victim Impact Statement or Restitution Request Form helps in determining the amount. This statement is the critical first step toward recovery of damages. It is very important that the victim make any request for restitution as early as possible in the process.
Restitution is an order of the court by which offenders are held accountable for the financial losses they caused to the victims of their crimes. Once the offender has been sentenced and the court has ordered the amount to be paid as restitution, a payment schedule is established that details when payments must be made to the court for distribution to the victim.
You may pursue collection of restitution from the defendant in the same manner as a civil judgment. This is your right as a victim. If you choose to pursue collection on your own, you need to notify the court, in writing, of your intent. Restitution Orders from the Longmont Municipal Court may be entered as a civil judgment in the District Court.
