Governor Hochul Signs Legislative Package to Empower Victims of Crime


New York State Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation last week to empower those who are victims of crime.

“In New York we believe strongly in protecting and uplifting all victims,” Governor Hochul said. “This legislative package allows victims that have not been physically injured to still obtain compensation for other impacts of various crimes – taking an important step to help victims seek the justice they deserve.”

The legislation will expand what qualifies as documentation for identification fraud and expand the eligibility of victims of unlawful dissemination of intimate images (also known as revenge porn), and reckless endangerment.
