  • Restitution Payment Question

    (I am on probation) Does NYC send a letter notifying you that you need to make your payments if I am not making them like I am supposed to? Or do they just violate you and throw you in jail? Or how does it work.

    I you are not making your scheduled restitution payments you are not likely to get a notice to pay. You are likely to get a violation of probation notice to return to court.

    Carl’s Answer

    You should go down to the court and ask for a copy of the summons. Perhaps there is some mistake that you can speak to either the prosecutor or the judge to get the summons dismissed if it was not you.
