THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED A TOTAL OF $1,365.20 IN DIRECT RESTITUTION AND A TOTAL OF 264 HOURS TO BE SERVED IN WORK IN THE COMMUNITY. A TOTAL OF $1,046.20 HAS BEEN COLLECTED AT THE TIME OF THE WRITING, AND ALL THE WORK HAS BEEN COMPLETED. THREE OF THE YOUTHS, RECOGNIZED AS HIGH-RISK, HAVE BECOME INVOLVED WITH THE LAW AGAIN.
