1. Any public official whose pension is reduced or revoked pursuant to this article shall be entitled to a return of his or her contribution paid into the relevant retirement system, without interest.
2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision one of this section, no payments in return of contributions shall be made or ordered unless and until the supreme court determines that the public official whose pension has been reduced or revoked has satisfied in full any judgments or orders rendered by any court of competent jurisdiction for the payment of restitution to the state or a municipality for losses incurred as a result of such crime related to public office. If the supreme court determines that such public official whose pension is to be reduced or revoked has failed to satisfy any outstanding judgment or order of restitution rendered by a court of competent jurisdiction, it may order that any funds otherwise due to such public official as a return of contribution, or any portion thereof, be paid in satisfaction of such judgment or order.
