(Super. Ct. No. CRF 080006580)

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Blease , J.

P. v. Devizcarra CA3

NOT TO BE PUBLISHED

California Rules of Court, rule 8.1115(a), prohibits courts and parties from citing or relying on opinions not certified for publication or ordered published, except as specified by rule 8.1115(b). This opinion has not been certified for publication or ordered published for purposes of rule 8.1115.

Sentenced to state prison for committing assault by means of force likely to produce great bodily injury (Pen. Code,*fn1 § 245, subd. (a)(1)), with an enhancement for personally inflicting great bodily injury (§ 12022.7, subd. (a)), and second degree burglary (§ 459), defendant Jaime Fernando Devizcarra contends only that the trial court abused its discretion in making its order of restitution to victim Edim Kurtovic. (§ 1202.4, subd. (f).) We disagree and shall affirm.

FACTUAL AND PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND

According to police reports, defendant and another person attempted to shoplift from the University of California, Davis bookstore. Kurtovic, a store security officer, stopped the two men outside the store. Defendant tried to flee, then returned and punched Kurtovic in the jaw.

When the trial court imposed sentence on defendant, it reserved jurisdiction to determine victim restitution.

Kurtovic calculated his loss of salary from August 2009, when he began to receive 80 percent of his salary due to disability, through December 2009, as $480 per month (20 percent of his salary), for a total of $2,400. Kurtovic also stated that his salary loss began August 14, 2009, and was ongoing, but would increase to 30 percent as of February 12, 2010.

The People also attached Kurtovic's earning statement from University of California, Davis, which showed his gross earnings as $3,311.71 per month and his net earnings as $2,403.29 per month.

In a subsequent brief, the People amended their requested award to $12,991.31. The new amount claimed included $8,061.31 for lost vacation and sick time from December 2008.

The probation department thereafter submitted a document "for the court's consideration" requesting a total restitution award of $13,791.31. This document was a copy of Kurtovic's previous statement, but with the claim of $2,400 in lost ...
