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.
