2007 ORS 144.275¹
Parole of inmates sentenced to make financial restitution
  • schedule of payments

Whenever the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision orders the release on parole of an inmate who has been ordered to pay compensatory fines pursuant to ORS 137.101 (Compensatory fine) or to make restitution pursuant to ORS 137.106 (Restitution to victims), but with respect to whom payment of all or a portion of the fine or restitution was suspended until the release of the inmate from imprisonment, the board may establish a schedule by which payment of the compensatory fine or restitution shall be resumed. In fixing the schedule and supervising the paroled inmate’s performance thereunder, the board shall consider the factors specified in ORS 137.106 (Restitution to victims) (4). The board shall provide to the sentencing court a copy of the schedule and any modifications thereof. [1977 c.271 §6; 1989 c.46 §1; 2003 c.670 §2]

Note: 144.275 (Parole of inmates sentenced to make financial restitution) was enacted into law by the Legislative Assembly but was not added to or made a part of ORS chapter 144 or any series therein by legislative action. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.

Notes of Decisions

This sec­tion, empowering Board of Parole to es­tab­lish restitu­tion schedule for parolees, did not relieve trial court of duty to enter order specifying, inter alia, time, place and manner of pay­ment. State v. Ewing, 36 Or App 573, 585 P2d 34 (1978)

Since this sec­tion places responsibility for deciding condi­tions of parole with Parole Board, court order which re­quired defendant to make monthly pay­ments as condi­tion of parole was not binding. State v. Kipp, 52 Or App 1011, 630 P2d 394 (1981); State v. Secreto, 54 Or App 709, 636 P2d 438 (1981)

Sentencing court has no authority to order defendant to pay restitu­tion as condi­tion of parole. State v. Gaines, 103 Or App 646, 798 P2d 730 (1990)

Notes of Decisions

Under rules of State Board of Parole, board could not in determining history/risk score, consider juvenile adjudica­tions that had been expunged pursuant to ORS 419.800 to 419.839, even if prisoner admits to board that they occurred. West v. Board of Parole, 86 Or App 616, 739 P2d 1096 (1987)
