When OVSRS has received the completed form or contact has been made with an OVSRS restitution analyst, OVSRS will verify whether a Court Order (required for restitution) is present or not in the offender’s case records. The court order must state the victim's name and a specific dollar amount to be paid to that person.
If there is a court order for restitution, 50% of an inmate’s wages and trust account deposits are collected to satisfy their restitution. It is possible, however, that while incarcerated the inmate does not make any deposits into his/her account, which CDCR cannot make any restitution collections. This is outside the control of CDCR.
