CRIMES - COMPENSATION - STATUTORY COMPENSATION FOR VICTIMS OF CERTAIN CRIMES
PENALTY ASSESSMENT (1) The term "victim," for purposes of the state crime victims compensation act, does not include those persons who have sustained only property losses as a result of a felony or gross misdemeanor. (2) Under the provisions of § 10(1), chapter 302, Laws of 1977, 1st Ex. Sess., the court is to impose a $25 penalty assessment after conviction of a felony or gross misdemeanor involving a "victim" even if the punishment for the crime involves only incarceration.
