CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A compensation fund for West Virginia crime victims will receive $1.2 million in federal funding. U.S. Sens. Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin announced the funding Thursday. The U.S. Department of Justice Office of Justice Programs provided the grant to help reimburse victims for expenses resulting from crimes. The funding comes from criminal fines, forfeited bonds, penalties and special assessments collected by federal prosecutors, courts and the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Last year West Virginia served nearly 40,000 crime victims and spent more than $2.9 million in compensation.
