Description

The WTHR investigation "found that offenders are getting away without paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to their victims because of the county's failure to enforce the orders. ... We made a surprising discovery: The courts were often writing off the restitution orders with the stroke of a pen, issuing civil judgments against the offenders. While that sounds good in theory, it leaves the onus of collecting on the victims themselves."
