Criminal Payed Funeral Expenses to the Murder Victim In California

In In re I. M. (2005) 125 Cal.App.4th 1195, the court upheld an order of the juvenile court that required a minor, who was convicted of being an accessory after the fact to murder, to pay the funeral expenses of the murder victim. (Id. at pp. 1208-1211.) Although the I. M. court cited section 730.6 in a footnote (125 Cal.App.4th at p. 1208, fn. 4), its analysis was based on analogies to Penal Code section 1203.1, concerning general conditions of adult probation, and on the opinion of our Supreme Court in People v. Carbajal, supra, 10 Cal.4th 1114, also construing Penal Code section 1203.1 (probation conditions) and Penal Code section 1202.4 (restitution). (In re I. M., supra, 125 Cal.App.4th at pp. 1209-1210.)
