STATE OF NORTH DAKOTA, PLAINTIFF AND APPELLEE
JONATHAN RAY MOORE, DEFENDANT AND APPELLANT
Appeal from the District Court of Burleigh County, South Central Judicial District, the Honorable Gail H. Hagerty, Judge.
[¶1] Jonathan Moore appeals the order setting restitution and the amended criminal judgment. Moore argues the district court erred when it ordered him to pay restitution because restitution can only be imposed after considering its rehabilitative affect and his classification as a habitual offender represents the State's acknowledgment that he cannot be rehabilitated. Moore also argues the evidence does not support the amount of restitution ordered by the district court. We conclude the district court did not abuse its discretion in determining restitution should be ordered or in determining the amount of restitution. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(4).
[¶2] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J.
Daniel J. Crothers

[¶3] The Honorable Wade L. Webb, D.J., sitting in place of Sandstrom, J., disqualified.
