I understand that has nothing to do with morals. It was just that if you put the work in to do it you would think they would stay the course. I understand drugs or any other issues could get in the way of that. I honestly hope the guy makes restitution and turns his life around. Not because I feel sorry for him but his kids will have a much tougher time if this doesn't happen.

Any insurance claim paid is deducted from the restitution, so if the victim filed a claim and was paid in full, there is no restitution due, according to the court system.

The restitution form has a section for losses recovered through insurance that are deducted. In this type of situation, it is difficult to say whether filing a claim or pursuing restitution is better. If you have a good idea that the person will pay, the restitution gives the victim and D.A. some leverage in court. It depends on the family, but many defendants have family members who will help with the restitution to keep them out of jail. It isn't fair, but some of the people in the court system consider that your loss was minimized by the claim payment. And by some people, I mean most of them on all sides. Even without restitution, this defendant will likely get a plea to a misdemeanor, suspended sentence, and probation.

With all due respect to the accused, and I really mean with all due respect...this guy is no meth head. I've seen meth heads, and there is absolutely no way this tub of lard is doing meth on a regular basis. Unless he started at 800 lbs.

the insurance company has subrogation rights against the thief on any theft claim they pay. Might be squeezing juice from a turnip but if I were the insurer I would file every time. Frankly, it’s BS that the court ordered restitution does not include paying the insurer back. We all pay for this in higher premiums.

UGH, Those people are from my neck of the woods. Went to school with some of them and one of them is a classmate's mother. I hope the sheriffs keep up the clean up.

guys this is getting off track all technical about restitution, how the law will play out, etc. Lets get this back on track to where the other thread headed. Anyone want to wager what his last meal request will be.....I am gonna guess......fresh triggerfish............

It would be good, now that this has all been substantiated, for some of the family members to weigh in again on this thread and make it great again!

I must have missed that college graduate part. All I saw was a dude in some Bama gear. If it was auburn gear then I would assume that he went there. Bama gear it’s a 1 in 20 chance.

Sock puppets get lost in the rinse cycle.

The Barrister was having trouble crafting cogent thoughts.
Crafting may have been a reach on my part.

Good catch. Looks like a former paralegal at another firm?
