Default Question About Restitution Issue...(Indiana people)


I've been searching these forums for answers, but nothing specifically fits my situation. So if you're in Indiana or have been sentenced to probation here (who hasn't?), please chime in.

I was sentenced on a theft charge, did 2.5 years of probation and when the probation ended, I had a large restitution balance. My probation officer got the prosecutor to send me to court on a citation instead of violating me for the restitution.

I made payments for 16 months of $200 each, and hit a major financial snag. I didn't make any payments after June and made one in February of $200 now that I am back on my feet. However, the prosecutor has issued another citation to appear in court for possible contempt.

A few questions:

1. Why can't they convert the restitution to a civil judgment like other states?

2. What penalties do I face? I know they cannot violate me because it's past the time which they can.

My child support has been paid faithfully over the time when I missed my restitution payments because I deem my kids more important than making a corporation whole (one that probably recovered the money I took on an insurance claim anyway).

Thank you in advance.

Could you give an update of what happened in your case? I'm sort of in your same situation... I can PM you & let you know more on mine If you get back on here.
