§

164a. Restitution

(a) A diversion

program may refer an individual who has suffered a pecuniary loss as a direct

result of a delinquent act or crime alleged to have been committed by a

juvenile or adult accepted to its program to the Restitution Unit established

by 13 V.S.A. § 5362 for the purpose of application for an advance payment

pursuant to 13 V.S.A. § 5363(d)(1). The Restitution Unit may enter into a

repayment contract with a juvenile or adult accepted into diversion and shall

have the authority to bring a civil action to enforce the repayment contract in

the event that the juvenile or adult defaults in performing the terms of the

contract.

(b) The

Restitution Unit and the diversion program shall develop a process for

documenting victim loss, information sharing between the unit and diversion

programs regarding the amount of restitution paid by the unit and diversion

participants' contractual agreements to reimburse the unit, transmittal of

payments from participants to the Unit, and maintenance of the confidentiality

of diversion information. (Added 2011, No. 145 (Adj. Sess.), § 2.)
