Chvala Attorney Says Restitution Order Is "Flawed"
Former Senate Majority Leader Chuck Chvala's attorney filed an objection to the state's $2,000 recommendation for restitution.
"Much as the Defendant would like to end this matter he cannot agree to the proposal by the State because it is flawed and does not come close to meeting the State's burden of proof," attorney James Olson writes to Dane County Judge David Flanagan.
The filing includes a number of letters to then-Senate Chief Clerk Don Schneider that include checks Chvala cut to cover "inadvertent personal phone calls on any State telephone lines." Chvala claims the payments should cut $687.50 from his restitution.
