A: Here is a partial answer, that may be helpful. Restitution is essentially paying a victim for property damage, bodily injury, etc.; for the victims economic out of pocket losses. Restitution issues take time to resolve, and is not ordered by the court until after sentencing. It is possible to have mutliple restitution hearings before it resolves. However, to know exactly what is happening on this case, one would have to ask the attorneys assigned to the case (defense and prosecutor) what is happening. Otherwise, it is just guessing.
