T.H. v. State, 10/17/17, COA (May) – Apparently fraudulent invoice for repairs not sufficient for finding as to damages to car.
D’s mother called police and turned him in for throwing a brick through a car window. In a restitution hearing, the victim presented an invoice for repairs that was rife with discrepancies and indicia of being fraudulent. The trial court found sufficient evidence the damages exceeded $750, but the COA found the invoice not credible and reversed that finding. (There was concurrent civil litigation as to the damages).
Judge Bradford dissent – He would find sufficient evidence to sustain the trial court’s finding.
