Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, William Kelly, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Mullins, P.J., Ahlers, J., and Carr, S.J.  Opinion by Carr, S.J.  (4 pages)

            Keith Cutwright appeals the denial of his request for reimbursement of restitution paid for attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: Because Cutwright’s restitution was paid in full, there was nothing left for Cutwright to pay, and the district court acted properly in denying his motion to modify restitution.  And Cutwright had no right to court-appointed counsel because an action to modify restitution is civil rather than criminal.
