If you are convicted of a crime against another person, you have the right to have a hearing to determine how much restitution is owed to the victim. At that hearing, there needs to be a showing in front of a judge to determine the amount that the victim is entitled to, as a result of the crime.

Most people would expect that the victim be entitled to reimbursement for certain medical expenses as well as psychological or other mental health counseling (not to exceed $10,000.00).

What many people may not know is that victims of crimes may be entitled to be reimbursed for many other expenses, including:

  • Non-medical remedial care and treatment in accordance with a religious method of healing recognized by the state
  • Job retraining
  • Claims for an increase in residential security for the victim’s home
  • Relocation costs
  • Child care
  • Funeral costs (if the victim died as a result of the crime)

Furthermore, the State Controller has the authority to withhold a tax refund for the nonpayment of child, family, or spousal support as well as nonpayment to the Restitution Fund.
