Supreme Court of North Dakota.

STATE of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee v. Brenda Lee CLEMENS, Defendant and Appellant

No. 20210136

Decided: October 14, 2021

Jayne Pfau, State's Attorney, Forman, ND, for plaintiff and appellee. Benjamin C. Pulkrabek, Mandan, ND, for defendant and appellant.

[¶1] Brenda Lee Clemens appeals from an amended criminal judgment entered after she pled guilty to theft. Clemens argues the district court erred in awarding the restitution amount. We conclude the district court acted within statutory limits. State v. Harstad, 2020 ND 151, ¶ 7, 945 N.W.2d 265 (“When reviewing a restitution order, we look to whether the district court acted within the limits set by statute, which is a standard similar to our abuse of discretion standard.”). We affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).

Per Curiam.

[¶2] Jon J. Jensen, C.J. Gerald W. VandeWalle Daniel J. Crothers Lisa Fair McEvers Jerod E. Tufte
