SECTION 1. Chapter 119 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by inserting after section 62 the following new section:-
Section 62A. The court shall make all reasonable efforts to ensure that restitution is made to the victim of a juvenile offender. The court shall order that the juvenile be required to repair, replace or otherwise make restitution for damage or loss caused by his wrongful act and may impose fines in limited amounts. Restitution shall be made a condition of release, placement, or parole by the juvenile court. In cases where the court determines it is appropriate, the court may order the juvenile to make restitution directly to the court in the form of financial payments, which shall then be turned over to the victim of the offense. The court may issue such orders as are necessary for the collection of restitution, including garnishments, wage withholdings and executions.
