A judgment of restitution or reparation may be enforced by the United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, the Attorney General for the District of Columbia, a victim entitled under the order to receive restitution or reparation, a deceased victim's estate, or any other beneficiary of the judgment in the same manner as a civil judgment.
The court shall provide each victim in a criminal case with a notarized and sealed copy of the Order of Restitution or Reparation.
