Annotation: This 2004 (July 1, 2003-June 30, 2004) Annual Report of the Maryland Criminal Injuries Compensation Board (CICB) presents the legal parameters for CICB's victim compensation, CICB's procedures for awarding compensation, and data on awards for the period covered in this report.
Abstract: Under legislation enacted by the Maryland legislature in 1968, the CICB has the authority to compensate individuals injured during a crime for medical expenses, dependency, loss of earnings, counseling, and crime-scene clean up. In homicide cases, funeral expenses and loss of support may be compensated for survivors who qualify. Maryland residents who are victims of international terrorism may also be eligible for compensation. Compensation is not allowed for pain and suffering or loss of property. By law, the CICB is the payer of last resort; all other resources must first be exhausted. Only expenses directly related to injury due to the crime and not covered by insurance or restitution and charity will be considered by the CICB. CICB does not use State tax money, but rather is funded through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Fund, which contains monies paid into the fund from offenders and the Federal Government under the Victims of Crime Act of 1984. This report outlines procedures for filing a claim and defines who is eligible for compensation. The maximum amount of money allowed for specific types of expenses is listed. The report also indicates changes in the laws that govern the CICB that were made during the 2004 legislative session. Data show the number of claims received by county and the number of claims, payments, and amount paid by crime type for each county.
