A hearing was held on December 16th 2019 in response to a petition filed by District Attorney Brian Sinnett regarding James Delaney’s ability to pay restitution.
President Judge, Michael A. George, entered a court order on December 16th 2019 directing Delaney to increase his payment plan from $100 a month to $200 a month towards restitution. In addition, Judge George scheduled another hearing for February 3rd 2020 at 1:00 p.m.
At the February 3rd 2020 hearing, Mr. Delaney presented information to the court that he is having a medical examination to determine his ability to pay and needs additional time to get his medical records. He is currently making a $200 monthly restitution payment to the Adams County Clerk of Courts, which is being put in an escrow account. When this escrow account is at a balance where all victims can receive a $25 restitution payment, the Clerk of Court office will forward that payment to all the victims of this criminal case.
James Delaney has been making monthly payments to the court
since his sentencing hearing in October of 2017. With 548 victims, and
over $1.5 million in restitution, the payments were held in escrow until there
was enough funds to distribute restitution to every victim. Restitution
payments have been mailed out and distributed on a Court Funds debit card. If
