What does Joint and Several restitution mean?

If there is more than one juvenile charged with a crime, the court can order all of the participants to pay the full amount of restitution. Once the full amount has been received by the court, they will no longer accept payments. This ensures that if one defendant does not pay, the victim will still be fully reimbursed.
