Restitution

State v. Campbell, 296 Or App 22 (2019): Trial court erred by declining to impose restitution for medical expenses. Reversed on state’s appeal. The prosecution offered evidence that the costs for medical procedures were paid and reasonable in the market. Defendant argued that no witness testified that the medical procedures performed were reasonable in light of the victim’s condition. The court held that, in light of the evidence regarding the bills and the regulatory framework, the charges were reasonable. The court rejected defendant’s argument that the medical treatment was not necessary, because defendant had not made that argument in the trial court and because trial evidence supported a contrary inference.
