Youth Restitution – AB 1186 (Bonta)

Assembly Bill 1186 was introduced by Assemblymember Bonta.

This bill will replace youth restitution with a more sustainable and accessible system of compensation for crime survivors by ensuring timely payments from the California Victim Compensation Board while holding youth accountable in appropriate ways that do not involve them paying money. Instead, youth will participate in restorative justice conferences, perform community service, or be connected to job opportunities.
