Victim's Rights Ceremony
The Fourth Judicial District Crime Victims' Rights Ceremony is scheduled for the Cocke County Courthouse lawn at 11 am today. It will honor and remember all people whose lives have been touched by violent crime. Verna Wyatt and Valerie Craig representing Tennessee Voices for Victims will be the guest speakers. Last year, the Tennessee Department of Treasury’s Criminal Injuries Compensation Program paid $11.7 million to innocent victims of violent crimes. Since its inception in 1982, the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund has paid out $301.2 million in claims to victims and their families when no other financial means where available. This week, Treasury will join organizations from across the country to recognize those victims for National Crime Victims’ Rights Week. National Crime Victims’ Rights Week is a way to raise awareness of victims’ rights, inspire the community, and address unmet needs. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Program works to help these victims throughout the year, and will be spending the week working to reach even more Tennesseans who may be eligible for compensation. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Program provides a fund of last resort that may cover expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of support to financial dependents, and more for victims of violent crime in Tennessee.
