AD1 reduces CAL client's restitution by nearly $5,000


Mr. H was convicted of fourth-degree arson for causing a fire that resulted in property damage to a commercial property and sentenced to probation. The sentence included restitution in the amount of nearly $15,000 based on alleged out-of-pocket loss due to, among other things, an air-conditioning unit. AD1 agreed with CAL’s argument that the out-of-pocket loss was erroneously determined and reduced the restitution to $14,000. CAL attorney Carola Beeney represented Mr. H on appeal.
