September 30, 2016  Board of Supervisors Approved 39% increase in Funding for Victim Assistance in Orange County through Community Service ProgramsImagine the devastation experienced by crime victims. Some have lost a loved one to homicide, some have felt betrayed through domestic violence or sexual assault, and some are the victim of a random attack. No matter the type of crime, their world turns upside down. Since 1978, Community Service Programs (CSP) - Victim Assistance Programs has been the primary provider of crime victim services for Orange County, stepping in at times of greatest need to provide expertise and support. Last year CSP provided assistance to 22,913 Orange County crime victims.
September 23, 2016  Prop 66 Gives Finality to VictimsUnder our current broken system, it takes more than 20 years from conviction to execution. Inmates on death row are far more likely to die of natural causes than by execution. Since our death penalty was reinstated in 1978 more than 900 murderers have been sentenced to death in California. These are not merely murders. These are the worst of the worst. Killings where the victim was tortured first: 126, child victims: 173, and murders of police officers: 44. Only 13 have been executed and none in over ten years, since 2006. With only 747 currently on death row, that means about 200 have died while awaiting their execution. I was a witness in the last execution at San Quintin, California in 2008. I went as a witness to personally experience a lawfully ordered termination of life.
