How quickly will I receive restitution?

Unfortunately, restitution does not always come when a defendant pleads guilty. There is normally a date given to the defendant by which all payments must be made. In some cases, a defendant found guilty may refuse to pay or is unable to comply with restitution. The State's Attorney will attempt enforcement procedures against the defendant. If the defendant is unable to fulfill the restitution other forms of sentencing may be considered and will be done at the discretion of the court.
