Fines and Restitution

In serious matters, it is not uncommon that a fine is imposed in addition to one of the other penalties. The amount of the fine cannot be greater than the maximum penalty for the offence.

If your offence involved financial loss to some other person, the Court may order that you pay restitution to that person for the full amount or a partial amount of their loss. This can also be in addition to a fine.

The Court will order that you pay any fine and/or restitution within a specified time. However you can make application to the Court at the time of sentencing to have your fine and/or restitution referred to the State and Penalties Enforcement Registry (SPER) where a longer payment schedule can be arranged.
