US v. Balentine, No. 08-1871

By FindLaw Staff on July 01, 2009 2:53 PM

District court order imposing restitution is affirmed where the requirement in 18 U.S.C. sec. 3664(d)(5) that the district court enter a restitution order within 90 days of sentencing does not divest the court of the authority to enter an order if the timing provision is breached, as such an interpretation finds no support in the text of the statute, would contravene the purposes of the Mandatory Victim Restitution Act and would reward defendants at the expense of their victims.
