161.71. Fines Imposed on Offenders

Whenever a fine is imposed upon an offender and such fine is to be deposited into the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund, and such fine is not to be deposited into the fund within one hundred eighty (180) days of the imposition of sentence, the Commission may institute a civil action in Superior Court against the offender to recover the amount of such fine, provided, however, the offender is not in the process of seeking judicial review of such conviction. The statutes of limitation for commencing such civil action shall be tolled while the offender is absent from Guam or incarcerated in any facility whatsoever. Any recovery from the offender, excluding costs and attorney fees, shall be deposited into the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund.
