Criminal Law : Identity Theft – Restitution – Notice

Where a defendant who pleaded guilty to bank fraud and identity theft was denied his motion to reopen, which he brought to challenge a restitution order that he claimed violated the 90-day deadline, the judgment is reversed because the notice provided to the defendant prior to the entry of the restitution order was not reasonable under the circumstances.

Judgment is reversed.
