            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Rachel E. Seymour, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED IN PART, VACATED IN PART, AND REMANDED.   Considered by Greer, P.J., and Schumacher and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (9 pages)

A juvenile offender appeals a district court restitution order, alleging the costs were not supported by substantial evidence, fell outside the scope of liability, or both.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the letterman jacket falls outside the scope of liability and vacate the award related to the same.  A correction is required in the calculation of restitution for mileage to reduce the claim to 734.5 miles at a rate of thirty-nine cents per mile and a further reduction in the mileage claim by $127 previously paid by Crime Victim Compensation.  We affirm the remainder of the restitution order.  We remand to the district court for entry of a restitution order consistent with this opinion.
