Criminal Injury Compensation Fund; claims. Provides that for crimes committed on or after July 1, 1977, and before July 1, 2000, where the period of time to file a claim with the Criminal Injury Compensation Fund (the Fund) has been extended because of newly discovered evidence, the Virginia Workers' Compensation Commission, which administers the Fund, may consider expenses that the claimant accrued after the date of the newly discovered evidence was discovered. Currently, consideration could be given only to those expenses that accrued after the date the Commission received notification from the attorney for the Commonwealth that the crime was being investigated for newly discovered evidence.
