Nebraska Pays the Least to Federal Crime Victims

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.
