  2.  No person ordered by the court to pay restitution pursuant to this section shall be released from probation until such restitution is complete.  If full restitution is not made within the original term of probation, the court shall order the maximum term of probation allowed for such offense.

  3.  Any person eligible to be released on parole shall be required, as a condition of parole, to make restitution pursuant to this section.  The parole board shall not release any person from any term of parole for such offense until the person has completed such restitution, or until the maximum term of parole for such offense has been served.

  4.  The court may set an amount of restitution to be paid by the defendant.  Said amount may be taken from the inmate's account at the department of corrections while the defendant is incarcerated.  Upon conditional release or parole, if any amount of such court-ordered restitution is unpaid, the payment of the unpaid balance may be collected as a condition of conditional release or parole by the prosecuting attorney or circuit attorney under section 559.100.  The prosecuting attorney or circuit attorney may refer any failure to make such restitution as a condition of conditional release or parole to the parole board for enforcement.
