AB 2160, as amended, Bonta. Crime victims: compensation for pecuniary loss.
Existing law governs the procedure by which crime victims may obtain compensation from the Restitution Fund, a continuously appropriated fund. Existing law establishes eligibility for compensation when prescribed requirements are met and authorizes the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board to grant compensation from the fund for pecuniary loss when the board determines it will best aid the person seeking compensation, including expenses for psychiatric, psychological, or other mental health counseling-related services if the services were provided by specific individuals. Existing law establishes requirements and sets specific monetary caps for certain payments or reimbursements relating to relocation. Existing law governs the award of compensation by the board for loss of income and support.
This bill would expand eligibility for compensation to include a victim or derivative victim that sustained emotional injury as a direct result of specific crimes relating to obscene matter. The bill would authorize the grant of compensation for expenses for psychiatric, psychological, or other mental health counseling-related services if the services were provided by a person who is licensed by the state to provide those services, or who is properly supervised by a person who is so licensed, subject to the board’s approval and subject to limitations and restrictions as imposed by the board. The bill would revise eligibility for relocation reimbursement or payments and increase monetary caps. The bill would revise those loss of income and support provisions to additionally authorize the grant of compensation for specific costs incurred by victims.
By expanding the authorizations for use of moneys in the Restitution Fund, a continuously appropriated fund, this bill would make an appropriation.
