State v. Chadwick
State v. Chadwick, 2021 UT App 40 (Harris, J.)
The defendant pleaded guilty to contracting without a license after he improperly installed tile on a bathroom floor and incorrectly grouted the shower. Although the State presented no evidence that the tiling in the shower was done incorrectly, the district court awarded restitution for the cost of re-doing the tiling in the shower. The Utah Court of Appeals reversed, holding:
- Because the State presented no evidence that the tiling in the shower was done improperly, the district court erroneously awarded the cost of re-tiling the shower in the restitution award.
