A $198,000 drop over two years in the Crime Victim and Witness Assistance Surcharge has hurt statewide programs that help crime and sexual assault victims, according to three experts interviewed during a Legally Speaking show taped on November 20, 2012. Not all judges are assessing the $92 felony/$67 misdemeanor fee after someone is convicted, and there is no one responsible for making sure they are collected. Panelists were Jill Karofsky of the state Department of Justice, Waukesha DA Brad Schimel and Jennifer Dunn, Waukesha County victim witness coordinator.
