HB17-1071 - Refund Monetary Amounts After Vacated Conviction

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning a process for repayment of certain criminal monetary amounts ordered by the court to be paid following conviction.

The bill establishes a process for a defendant who has paid a monetary amount due for a criminal conviction in a district or county court to request a refund of the amount paid if:


  • The conviction was overturned and either the charges were dismissed or the person was acquitted following a new trial; or
  • All or part of an order for restitution was reversed and the defendant paid more restitution than was ultimately ordered.

The bill directs the state court administrator to pay to the defendant the amount of any refund found due.
(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
