State v. MacyAnnotate this Case
In 2007 and 2008, Defendant was convicted of four felonies. In 2010, Defendant absconded from a pre-release center. Several months later, Defendant was extradited from Idaho to Montana. Defendant pled guilty to escape. Defendant was sentenced to ten years imprisonment and ordered to pay restitution to the State for the costs incurred in extraditing him back to Montana from Idaho. On appeal, Defendant challenged the restitution requirement. The Supreme Court reversed, holding that the district court erred when it ordered Defendant to pay restitution to the State for expenses incurred in extraditing him from Idaho to Montana, as the court lacked the statutory authority to impose restitution for extradition costs.
