Victim’s Rights

Restitution

If a victim of a crime has suffered a financial loss, we usually attempt to obtain an order for restitution. Restitution is reimbursement, paid by the defendant, for out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the crime victim. Restitution is usually made in monthly payments that are based on the defendant’s ability to pay.

Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program

The Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program was established to provide financial assistance to crime victims who have suffered financial losses due to a crime (when other resources are not available to cover those expenses). A claim for benefits under the Crime Victims Compensation Act may be filed by a victim, the spouse or children of a deceased victim, or other authorized persons, such as a parent or guardian of a victim who is a minor.

For more information on eligibility, reimbursable expenses, how to file a claim, and other information, please go to: Idaho Crime Victims Compensation Program.
