According to Idaho law, a victim is entitled to reimbursement from the guilty party for expenses directly related to the crime. This reimbursement is called restitution. A victim may request the criminal court to order the offender to pay restitution for expenses that are not covered by insurance, such as property damage or wage loss. The idea behind this statutory scheme is to provide a quicker and less expensive method for victims to obtain financial reimbursement, than going through the civil system. There is no guarantee that a court will order the defendant to reimburse the victim through the criminal case. However, this is accomplished in the great majority of cases. The primary statute governing when and what courts may order the defendant to pay for in a criminal proceeding are set forth in Idaho Code 19-5304.
