The petition of the day is:

17-522

Issue: Whether, where a victim entitled to restitution under the Mandatory Victims Restitution Act of 1996 neither accepts restitution nor assigns it to the Crime Victims Fund, the district court may nonetheless order the defendant to pay restitution to the Crime Victims Fund, despite the absence of statutory authority for such an order.
