Default Scared-can't pay restitution-what will happen?

I took a plea agreement in 2002 that included repayment of restitution (to insurance companies) that ended up totaling almost $60,000. I have only been able to pay $50 most months, sometimes $100. My probation is up next year and I don't know what will happen when it expires.

I have done everything I am supposed to do. I kicked drugs and mental illness, which the judge knows about because I violated probation to leave the state to get help and when I turned myself back in I served the regular 60 days county and the judge ordered my interstate compact to Georgia when I reside now. I am married and have a child, and another on the way. It has been hard to find work with a felony record.

I need to know if when it is time will the judge extend my probation even though there is no way I could pay the remainder of what I owe in a few years, or will I be released off of probation and have my restitution converted into a civil judgement? Or will the Judge be able to send me to prison? Please help. I am scared to death. Thank You.

LYR42,
Your court paperwork should have how the monies are to be re-paid. Here is a link the the Arizona Revised Statutes for Criminal Law to help you understand your paperwork. They should have ARS numbers on your paperwork that outlines how you pay the money back. If you have any questions, please ask and we can try to help you understand it..... Here is the link: http://www.azleg.state.az.us/Arizona...s.asp?Title=13 Good Luck!!

I am too in AZ with restitution. BREATHE! They can not send you to prison. The worse case is this..3 year exention on probation. The other scenario is a criminal restitution order aka judgement. You have to keep paying your monthly amount...or they will try to collect. PM if you want...I am in the same boat. Also, how did you get interstate compact..I have been thinking about that, too.

In all likelihood, the worst thing that will happed is the court will extend your probation and order than any unpaid amounts become a civil judgment once you are off probation.
