  3. Crimes Compensation Trust Fund (§ 938.03, F.S.);

In the event payments are received from probationers in cases in which restitution has not yet been determined, the supervising probation agencies are authorized to disburse said payments in accordance with priorities #2 - #4 above, pending the issuance of restitution orders.

TO BE RECORDED in Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns and Volusia counties.
