(ii) to forward a written notice to the person or governmental unit to whom the restitution obligor was ordered to pay restitution.
(2) The written notice shall state that:
(i) the judgment of restitution has been recorded and indexed as a money judgment in the District Court; and
(ii) a notice of lien has been forwarded to the circuit court of the county of entry of judgment.
Money judgments recorded and indexed
(b) Subject to the Maryland Rules, unless a restitution obligor pays complete restitution, termination of probation by a court does not affect a money judgment that has been recorded and indexed under Part I of this subtitle.
