Restitution in Pennsylvania: A Multimethod Investigation

This 2002 report describes the results of five studies of the imposition and effects of restitution in Pennsylvania. The studies used multiple methods (analyses of existing data bases, collection of information from court records, surveys of decision makers), multiple sites (urban and rural counties across the state), multiple levels (statewide, county, individual), and multiple years, including a pre/post analysis of a 1995 statutory change making restitution mandatory.
