SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Supreme Court has reversed an order that a convicted sex offender must pay $13,000 in restitution to his victim for lost income potential.

The ruling overturns several lower court orders that Scott C. Wadsworth must pay for “lost income” for the victim of his crimes. In a ruling handed down earlier this week, the state’s top court said that the Utah Crime Victims Reparations Act — as it was written at the time — did not cover her potential for lost wages.
