On Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 2:00 P.M., on behalf of the Department of the Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney, I testified in support of HB234 (Honolulu Prosecuting Attorney bill) that amends the definition of “debt” in section 231-52, HRS, to include court-ordered restitution subject to civil enforcement. Removes court’s authority to revoke restitution once ordered. Creates standards and procedures for income-withholding, for purposes of enforcing restitution orders. Extends victims’ access to adult probation records, to include access to payment compliance records, for purposes of enforcing restitution orders. Requires that any bail posted by a defendant be applied toward payment of any court-ordered restitution in the same case.
