Universal Citation: CO Code § 18-1.3-206 (2022)
  1. As a condition of every sentence to probation where information received through a crime stopper organization led to the arrest and felony conviction of a defendant, the court may require such defendant, as a condition of probation, to repay all or part of any reward paid by such organization. The amount of such repayment shall not exceed the actual reward paid by any crime stopper organization and shall be used solely for paying rewards. The court shall fix the manner and time of repayment.
  2. In the event the defendant fails to repay the crime stopper reward in accordance with an order of the court, the defendant shall be returned to the sentencing court and the court, upon proof of failure to pay, may:
    1. Modify the amount of the repayment;
    2. Extend the period of probation;
    3. Order the defendant committed to jail with work release privileges; or
    4. Revoke probation and impose the sentence otherwise required by law.
  3. When, as a result of a plea bargain agreement, a defendant is ordered to repay a reward pursuant to subsection (1) of this section, the department or agency supervising the collection of such repayment may assess a charge of fifteen dollars to the defendant for collection of each bad check or each bad check received as a repayment.
  4. Any order for the repayment of all or part of a crime stopper reward as a condition of probation shall be prioritized in accordance with section 18-1.3-204 (2.5).
  5. As used in this section, unless the context otherwise requires:
    1. "Bad check" has the same meaning provided in section 16-7-404.
    2. "Crime stopper organization" has the same meaning provided in section 16-15.7-102 (1), C.R.S.
