The State of Idaho does not provide compensation for economic losses from property crimes and other crimes such as driving under the influence or vehicle accidents. Property crimes include burglary, theft, fraud, etc. However, the law does allow you to seek restitution directly from the person who committed the crime. You can get restitution for the value of items that are destroyed or stolen, out of pocket medical expenses, and lost wages.
You can find information about your case on the web! Go to www.idcourts.us. Go to name search or case number search and type in the information. You can see a list of all documents that have been filed and you can see the date and time for the next scheduled court date.
