Commonwealth v. Matthew Wayne Dietrich J-61-2009 (5/27/2009)
Topic: Restitution – Amending a Restitution Order
Summary: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court concluded that a restitution order that sets an amount of restitution and states that the order is subject to later modification is not invalid. Further, under 18 Pa.C.S.A. Section 1106(c)(3), a court may modify restitution at any time, but the reasons for the modification must be stated on the record.
