SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — Two weeks after the downtown Sacramento shooting, some groups are urging state lawmakers to step up resources for crime victims.
A new study released on Monday shows many victims aren’t being provided with the services and compensation they need. That new study showed nearly half of the more than 700 crime victims surveyed say they weren’t offered restitution.
Crime victims FOX40 spoke with said the lack of resources and services means a lack of healing.
“I shouldn’t have to be speaking and being her voice, but this is the life forced upon me by the person who killed my daughter,” said Jenifer Redmond, whose daughter was murdered in 2020.
