In re J.G., 240397

Remanded for a new hearing on a juvenile offender's ability to pay a restitution award. Held that his receipt of Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI) benefits did not mean that his financial situation enabled him to pay. The juvenile court must reconsider the restitution award based on factors including his future earning capacity.
