In most criminal cases other than traffic offenses, the judge has the authority at the sentencing hearing to require that payment be made to reimburse the crime victim (including the victim's insurance company.) The judge will give the District Attorney a specific period of time to determine the amount of restitution to claim, and the defendant has a right to either accept that amount or have a hearing where the the judge decides the proper restitution amount.
