My husband was involved in a hit and run with a tree with a rental car in my name. He told me he was car jacked I told police that info and when they came to the house I was told about the hit and run by them. They filed a complaint against me for filing a false police report. The judge ordered 1 day in jail, $500.00 fine. I was also ordered to pay restitution for the car in the amount of $20,000. My wages have been garnished though FTB for the past 2 years and my probation was extended in 2007 to 2010 to pay. The probation department is now sending me letters to provide them financial info and I just received a letter with a different amount to pay, same case number to pay the balance in 30days or wages will be garnished they already know my wages are garnished
Do I have an opportunity to request a restitution hearing on this? The letters are threatening court action if I do not comply with all of their requests even though I did so when this all happened. The car was fully insured and I have not been able to get any information from my husband with whom I have been separated from since this happened in 2005 nor the car company, nor the courts on why the insurance did not cover this I do know that he did not have a DUI connected with this .
