A Chattanooga man out of prison after a 2012 reckless homicide conviction will appear in court for failing to pay restitution to the family of the man he killed.

Myles Stout, 23, made bail after he was arrested Tuesday for a probation violation.

He will be asked to show just cause in court for failing to make payments on a $21,998 restitution amount he owes to the family of Myles Compton, the man he shot at a party in March 2012.

A probation violation report shows that Stout has made six payments totaling $305 and that he has not made a payment since October.

Stout served less than four months of a combined six-year prison sentence that included a reckless endangerment conviction in addition to the reckless homicide.

He was slated for 159 months of probation following his release in February 2013, and he was advised that failure to make a restitution payment for 90 days would constitute a violation of his probation.

The report said that Stout has stated on several occasions that he does not feel he should have to pay restitution.
