I've been paying on restitution and can they reopen and charge me again with a different charge and request that the restitution should be paid in full and I've been paying on it every month and I can't afford to pay it in full what should I do.
Your question is a little difficult to follow. Were you already convicted and ordered to pay restitution? If so, you should be making payments pursuant to any court-ordered payment plan. It's always possible the State could move to revoke your suspended sentence if you are't paying pursuant to the plan.

Please do not send private messages with follow-up questions unless you are seeking to retain counsel. If it has been suggested you consult with an attorney, then it is likely your question is too complex to try to answer in an online forum or by private message.
If you aren’t complying with probation, your original sentence can be imposed. If you cannot pay restitution in full, pay some amount each and every month.
