23A-28-11. Community service restitution--Plan preparation, approval and modification--Recipients exempt from providing reemployment assistance and workers' compensation insurance and certain civil liability. If the sentencing court orders suspended imposition of sentence, suspended sentence, or probation, the court may require as a condition that the defendant, in cooperation with the court services officer assigned to the defendant, promptly prepare a plan of community service restitution, including the number of work hours to be performed, where the community service work is to be performed, and the time necessary for completion of the community service work. The plan of community service restitution shall be submitted promptly to the court. The court may enter an order approving the plan or modifying it. Any defendant sentenced to community service restitution is not an agent or employee of the recipients of these services. Any recipient of community service restitution, described in subdivision § 23A-28-2(1), does not have to provide the defendant with reemployment assistance insurance pursuant to Title 61 nor with workers' compensation insurance pursuant to Title 62. Recipients and their officers, agents, and employees are immune from any cause of action for civil damages brought by the defendant or any third party if the cause of action arises from any act of commission or omission by the recipient or any of its officers, agents, or employees or any act of commission or omission by the defendant and the acts arise out of or are in connection with a community service restitution plan, except when the cause of action is the result of gross negligence or willful and wanton misconduct of the recipient or its officers, agents, or employees and except to the extent that the recipient has purchased liability insurance. Nothing in this section relieves individual defendants from responsibility for their individual acts.
