Justice Fellowship has released its first annual report on crime victim compensation. Nebraska ranks as the stingiest state.

Justice Fellowship President Craig DeRoche says Nebraska, on average, provides only 26-dollars to crime victims, well under the national average of 295-dollars…not that that is a lot to compensate crime victims. . .

DeRoche suggests Nebraska join with other states, asking the federal government to release more of the 11(B)Billion dollars in federal crime victim compensation money now sitting idle in Washington.
