State v. FutrellAnnotate this Case
The Supreme Court reversed the portion of the court of appeals decision affirming the district court’s order of restitution because neither the district court nor the court of appeals had the advantage of the decision in State v. Arnett, 413 P.3d 787 (Kan. 2018), when calculating or considering the restitution order here.
Defendant pleaded no contest to the residential burglary of Ryan Platt’s home. The trial court denied Defendant’s motion to limit restitution to $250 in damage caused to the screen door in the residential burglary and ordered the restitution requested by the State. The Supreme Court reversed the portion of the court of appeals decision upholding the order that Defendant pay $680 for items removed from Platt’s home and vehicle and remanded for a new hearing on restitution, directing the district court to reconsider its calculation of restitution under the standard adopted in Arnett.
