RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina’s Crime Victims Compensation
Commission will review 50 claims totaling more than $1 million when
it meets this week.

The commission is scheduled to meet Wednesday at the Archdale
Building in Raleigh.

The compensation program reimburses people who suffer medical
expenses and lost wages because they were an innocent victim of
crime. During the last federal fiscal year, the commission awarded
more than $10 million to victims of assault, rape, domestic
violence, sexual assault, driving while impaired and other crimes.
