"HB 23 simply enables the court to consider documented volunteer labor as a factor in the process of determining restitution."
- Rep. Weyhrauch

 

An Act relating to court-ordered restitution and compensation following a criminal conviction.

Section 1. Expands the type of restitution that a court can order a defendant convicted of an offense can be ordered to make. Specifically, the court would have the power to order restitution equal to the value of volunteer labor incurred to alleviate or mitigate the effects of the crime.

Section 2. Expands the type of restitution that a court can order a defendant convicted of an offense can be ordered to make while the defendant is on probation. Specifically, the court would have the power to order restitution equal to the value of volunteer labor incurred by the public, private, or private non-profit organization to alleviate or mitigate the effects of the crime.

These changes would specifically reverse the view of the Alaska Court of Appeals, expressed in Demers v. State, 42 P.3d 1, (Alaska App. 2002), that Alaska statutes do not specifically allow a court to include compensation to the victim public, private, or private non-profit organization for the value of volunteer labor incurred to alleviate or mitigate the effects of a defendant's crime.
