In addition to any other sentence it may impose as a result of a criminal conviction, the court may order that a defendant reimburse to a person, organization, association or public body or officer, any sum or portion thereof offered and paid by the person, organization, association or public body or officer under ORS 131.885 (Offer of reward) to 131.895 (Procedure for payment), as a reward for information leading to the apprehension of the defendant. Reimbursement under this section shall be ordered paid into the court, for further transfer by the clerk to the person, organization, association or public body or officer entitled to it.
In determining whether to order reimbursement under this section, the court shall take into account:
The financial resources of the defendant and the burden that reimbursement will impose, with due regard to the other obligations of the defendant; and
The ability of the defendant to make reimbursement on an installment basis or on other conditions to be fixed by the court. [1981 c.300 §4; 1987 c.905 §13; 1993 c.543 §3; 1995 c.461 §2; 1999 c.217 §4; 2011 c.597 §121]
