Unclaimed Victim Restitution

7/5/19 -  The Central Collections Division of the Treasurer Tax Collector’s Department is currently holding $3061.78 in unclaimed court-ordered restitution payments to victims of crime in Butte County. The payments have been held in trust for more than three years and efforts by the Court, District Attorney's Office and Central Collections to contact the victims have been exhausted.  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.”

Prior to utilizing the funds for victim services in Butte County, a final attempt is being made to notify the victims through newspaper and website publications. To respect the privacy of the victims, the unclaimed restitution is listed by the court case filing name. Additional information on each case is available through the  Butte County Superior Court's Online Case Index.

Filing a Claim

If you or your dependents were a victim of a crime related to a court case on the Unclaimed Victim Restitution List and believe you  are entitled to the funds,  please submit a Victim Restitution Claim Form to the Central Collections Division of the Butte County Treasurer Tax-Collector’s Department by 5:00 p.m. on September 4, 2019.

On September 4, 2019, any remaining unclaimed restitution will become the property of the County of Butte to benefit services associated with the District Attorney's Victim Witness Bureau.
