Kansas to receive $1.07 million for victims

February 15, 2001


Kansas has been awarded more than $1.07 million to help support crime victim assistance programs.

Convicted federal criminals pay fines and penalties collected by the U.S. Attorney's office, federal courts and the federal Bureau of Prisons.

Fines collected in one year are deposited into the Crime Victims Fund, established in 1984.
