Offender won't pay restitution

Des Moines, IA |

My parent was killed in a fight and the judge ordered we get $150,000. He refuses to pay. What can be done? I do not have a lot of money to pay for attorney.

Contact the prosecution and have him violated and go back to court.

Most lawyers will give you a free consultation if you ask for one. We do this all the time, but remember that our time is valuable and you should stay with the people who help you the most.

The executor of the estate could file a civil action for wrongful death.
