Restitution Amount Substantially Reduced:

Client was accused of stealing from a charitable organization of which he was an officer. Client admitted that he had taken some money but that he had returned it all to the organization. At a contested restitution hearing, the State requested restitution in the amount of over $25,000. After a lengthy hearing, Attorney Knuesel was able to show the Court that client should not be responsible for the amount sought by the State. The Court ordered restitution of about $1,800. Client was very happy and grateful.
