Restitution — Limitations — Ordering Payments Withheld from Prison Wages

State v. Troy B. Baker, 2001 WI App 100, 243 Wis. 2d 77, 626 N.W.2d 862

Issue: Whether the trial court had authority to order that restitution be withheld from prison wages.

Holding: Because a restitution order contained in a judgment of conviction is an “obligation reduced to judgment,” a trial court has authority under § 303.01(8)(b) to order disbursement of restitution from prison wages. ¶17. (Court distinguishes State v. Evans, 2000 WI App 178, ¶11, ¶16, 238 Wis. 2d 411, 617 N.W.2d 220.)
