Default Tax Write Off???

I had a family I ended up taking to small claims court during the summer. I won the amount that was owed, plus court costs, etc. The day that I was filing for a wage garnishment, the husband and wife's home was busted for meth. Needless to say, I will never see the money as they are in jail, with many charges against them and will probably be in prison. My question is, can I write off this money as a loss on my taxes? Any help would be appreciated!
