            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Cherokee County, Nancy L. Whittenburg, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Mullins, J., and Gamble, S.J.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J. (7 pages)


            An offender appeals the order imposing restitution for reimbursement of the Crime Victim Assistance Program and for court-appointed attorney fees, contending the court failed to consider his financial resources in finding he is able to pay.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the court appropriately considered the relevant factors in determining whether the imposition of restitution would cause hardship to DeLong, he failed to meet his burden to prove an abuse of discretion.  We affirm.
