Restitution calculated in death of 16-year-old girl

The West Central Tribune of Willmar reports that a Prinsburg man has been sentenced today to six months in jail (served off and on) because he provided alcohol to a 16 year old girl at a party at his home. She was killed while driving home.

What caught my attention is this additional note:

…and pay $17,550 in restitution to the family of the 16-year-old girl ..

It’s a word that caught the notice of only one person commenting on the paper’s Web site.

We’ll attempt to get a breakdown on the calculation from the victim’s services coordinator on Tuesday.
