State v. Jamieson, 2017 UT App 236 (Dec. 29, 2017).

The court vacated a restitution order against the defendant who was convicted of computer crimes for stealing and disseminating his bosses’ emails. The court held it was plain error for the district court to include in the restitution figure some amount for time spent by the company’s employees while participating in the criminal case against the defendant – regardless of whether they appeared voluntarily or pursuant to a subpoena.
