Collection and Disbursement of Payments

Victim Information

As a victim of a criminal case you may be entitled to restitution. If this is the case, here are some helpful guidelines:

  • When a defendant makes a payment to the Clerk of Courts, 50% of that payment is applied towards restitution.  There is a 15 day hold on payments unless paid by cash. 
  • Unless ordered by the court, payments made on cases with multiple victims will be divided equally.
  • Under current State Law, the current order of distribution on cases is as follows:
    • Crime Victim Compensation Fund (Act 96 of 1984)
    • Victim Witness Services (Act 111 of 1998)
    • Private Crime Victim Restitution
    • Insurance Company Restitution
    • Fines, Costs, & Fees   [Read More
