Highlight

When ordering restitution for a victim of a criminal act, district courts must not consider the defendant’s ability to pay under N.D.C.C. § 12.1-32-08(1). North Dakota Constitution article I, § 25(1)(n) requires “full” restitution be awarded to the victim for “all losses” sustained. This amendment to the constitution implicitly repealed the statutory requirement to consider ability to pay.
