I have a case where several head of cattle were stolen from various folks in the county. Defendant pled guilty...we had a sentencing hearing and as part of the judgment the Court ordered restitution to the various victims in an attached itemized list. Defendant never made any sort of objection to the amount of restitution and now appeals the specific restitution findings and attached list.

Must the defendant voice some sort of objection at the time of the hearing to the restitution order to question that issue on appeal.

If his claim is couched in sufficiency language, then probably not, as one can generally challenge the sufficiency of the evidence without a trial objection.
