Rhode Island's crime fund may go broke

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island's crime
victims compensation fund is going broke, a victim of
too much success.
More and more people have discovered that they
can turn to the fund for up to $25,000 in medical bills,,
lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering..
IN THE PAST 12 months; the fund has paid out
$1,097,734 - more than twice what it gathered in fees
assessed against convicted criminals and interest on
the principal, according to records.
"I can only see this becoming accelerated as time
goes on," said Attorney General Dennis Roberts II.
"We want to take steps to make them (victims) feel
part of the societal team - the prosecutor, the police
and the victim," he said.
THE CRIME Victims Indemnity Fund "is essential
to giving the average person the faith they should
have in the criminal justice system," he said.

More than half the states have funds similar to
Rhode Island's. Established in 1978, it paid its first
claim in 1979. Twenty-seven claims were paid out in
1982, bringing the total to 51 at the end of that year,
according to court records.
The fund showed a balance of $114,754 as of Aug. 1.
If it goes below $100,000, the fund shuts down until it
generates enough money to resume paying claims. It
is based on fees ranging from $500 for someone sen-
tenced to more than five years on a felony to $10 for a
"THE SAD PART of it is that if the fund runs out, a
lot of people will be left uncompensated," said Daniel
Schrock, a lawyer specializing in claims against the

in his apartment in Providence last November," he
added. "His jaw was fractured, a lot of bones broken.

he was out of work for four months, to the point
where he was laid off. He was able to collect lost
wages. It meant alot to him."
People making claims have to bring a civil suit
against the state in Superior Court. The person must
have filed a police report within 10 days of a crime; it
is not necessary for someone to have been convicted.
"Then it's a matter of adding up the medical ex-
penses, lost wages, something for pain and suffering
and arrive at fees for the attorney," said John Horan,
an administrator for the Superior Court.
In Michigan, Gov. James Blanchard earlier
this year proposed eliminating the Crime Victims
Compensation Board as part of a $225 million budget
cut, but the proposal drew public protest and was
