He discussed his personal situation, which involves significant restitution payments.
Mr. Lohman continued to describe his personal situation, including the amount of interest he will pay on owed restitution, and its effect on his life.
Mr. Lohman responded to a question concerning the effect of restitution and interest payments on his ability to enter into financial agreements, such as loans. He stated that he was unsure of the effect on financial documents, such as a credit report, or the effect of ending his probation. In response to a question, Mr. Lohman discussed the circumstances concerning the offense he committed.
