Unclaimed Victim Restitution


PUBLIC NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, pursuant to and in compliance with all public notice requirements in effect. The Central Collections Division of the Treasurer Tax Collector’s Office has on record a total of $6,228.69 in Victim Restitution Fund accounts over three years old. The total amount represents collected but unclaimed Victim Restitution payments received, per court order, from defendants.These fund payments have been held in trust for over three years and efforts have been made to contact victims so that monies, held on their behalf, could be distributed. Government Code Section 50050 states that “Money representing restitution collected on behalf of victims shall be either deposited into the Restitution Fund or used by the local agency for purposes of victim services after expiration of the three-year period.”Therefore, it is our intent to utilize these funds to support local victim witness programs if they are not claimed by the deadline of 5pm on August 13, 2021.
