Restitution

Purpose
Restitution is an amount of money that has been ordered by a Judge, to be paid to reimburse a victim for any losses and/or damages incurred during a crime.

Requirement
If you have been ordered to pay restitution, you must make a monthly payment towards your balance.  If you fail to make a monthly payment, the Prosecutor’s Office will file a motion to revoke your probation.  Your restitution should be paid in full at least three months prior to your probation ending.

Payment Info
All payments should be in the form of a money order or cashier’s check, payable to the Franklin County Prosecutor.  The Prosecutor’s Office cannot accept cash or personal checks.

Restitution should be paid at the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Payment Window or mailed to the office at 15 S Church St Room 204, Union, MO  63084

Money orders can be purchased at most banks, post offices, some convenience stores and some grocery stores.  Cashier’s checks can be purchased at a bank.  Be sure when purchasing a money order or cashier’s checks that you have the exact amount due when making a payoff.  Some businesses will not exchange a money order on the spot.  Some businesses must send the wrong money orders to a corporate office, and it could take weeks to get your money back.
