Ok, from what you are telling me, the value you are listing for the personal property that was stolen is the price you paid for it at the store. This is known as the replacement price.
The law states the following:
"Whether to order restitution is within the sound discretion of the trial court. The amount of restitution ordered must, however, be just and it must have a factual basis in the record. Although restitution in juvenile
cases is limited to actual damages, it is construed that term in accordance with the approach to restitution in criminal cases. In criminal cases, the trial court has broad discretion in determining just restitution. Tex. Code Crim. Proc. Ann. art. 42.037 (Vernon Supp. 2001)"
In re W.F., 2001 Tex. App. LEXIS 2200 (Tex. App. Dallas Apr. 5, 2001)
In other words, it is within the court's discretion as to what amount it wants to order restitution at. It cannot be higher than the value of the property taken, but it can be lower. While the court may have set the restitution amount too low, because it has already been ordered by the court, there is no way for you to go and have that amount changed.
Rather, you should file suit in Travis County small claims
court for the rest of the amount. You should sue for conversion and request the full amount of replacement costs.
In regard to being to hold anyone liable at Travis County, you do not have standing under the law to do this. The best you can do is make a complaint to their supervisors. This is because a victim is not per se entitled to a restitution order from a criminal proceeding. You as the victim are entitled to go to civil court to sue for the value of your property.
