Description

A look into court-ordered restitution in Texas reveals that in the last five years, more than 90 percent of parolees still owe their victims money. In fact, only 5.3 percent of the $435 million in restitution that Texas parolees were ordered to pay in those five years has ever been collected. The state does nothing to attempt to collect the money from these people once they are discharged from the system.
