Chapter 213 - Pardons and Paroles; Remissions of Fines and Commutations of Punishments
NRS 213.126 - Requirement of restitution as condition of parole; Restitution Trust Fund.
1. Unless complete restitution was made while the parolee was incarcerated, the Board shall impose as a condition of parole, in appropriate circumstances, a requirement that the parolee make restitution to the person or persons named in the statement of parole conditions, including restitution to a governmental entity for expenses related to extradition, at the times specified in the statement unless the Board finds that restitution is impracticable. The amount of restitution must be the amount set by the court pursuant to NRS 176.033. In appropriate circumstances, the Board shall include as a condition of parole that the parolee execute an assignment of wages earned by the parolee while on parole to the Division for restitution.
2. All money received by the Division for restitution must be deposited with the State Treasurer for credit to the Restitution Trust Fund which is hereby created.
3. The Division shall make pro rata payments from the money received from the parolee to each person to whom the restitution was ordered pursuant to NRS 176.033. Such a payment must be made not less than once each fiscal year. Any money received from the parolee that is remaining at the end of each fiscal year must be paid at that time in pro rata payments to each person to whom the restitution was ordered. A final pro rata payment must be made to such persons when the parolee pays the entire restitution owed.
4. A person to whom restitution was ordered pursuant to NRS 176.033 may at any time file an application with the Division requesting the Division to make a pro rata payment from the money received from the parolee. If the Division finds that the applicant is suffering a serious financial hardship and is in need of financial assistance, the Division shall pay to the applicant his or her pro rata share of the money received from the parolee.
5. All payments from the Fund must be paid as other claims against the State are paid.
6. If restitution is not required, the Board shall set forth the circumstances upon which it finds restitution impracticable in its statement of parole conditions.
7. Failure to comply with a restitution requirement imposed by the Board is a violation of a condition of parole unless the parolee’s failure was caused by economic hardship resulting in his or her inability to pay the amount due. The parolee is entitled to a hearing to show the existence of that hardship.
8. If, within 3 years after the parolee is discharged from parole, the Division has not located the person to whom the restitution was ordered, the money paid to the Division by the parolee must be deposited with the State Treasurer for credit to the Fund for the Compensation of Victims of Crime.
