Victims Program Needs Major Overhaul

JUNE 27, 2011

By RICHARD TRAINOR

The California State Victims of Crime Program (VCP) is a neat little boutique agency designed to assist crime victims. It’s officially known as the Victims Compensation and Government Claims Board, or colloquially as the CalVCP.

Formed in 1965, CalVCP is the oldest such crime victims program in the nation. It serves more than 50,000 crime victims per year and has an annual budget of more than $100 million. The program has a state-federal funding mix, getting 55 cents in federal money out of every dollar it spends.

So far, CalVCP has provided over $2 billion in compensation to crime victims. Its new Executive Director, Julie Nauman, crowed about it when the $2 billion milestone was reached:

This is a significant moment for CalVCP and calls attention to the thousands of victims whose lives were permanently altered by violence and had nowhere else to turn. Besides paying for the expenditures associated with crime, which often leaves families financially devastated, our program plays an important role in the healing process, allowing many victims to pick up the pieces and move on with their lives in some shape or form. [Note: the CalVCP link for this quote recently was taken down by CalVCP. It formerly was here.]

In some shape or form, though, sometimes not good ones.

The CalVCP program has routinely been the subject of remedial legislation, and has been investigated by the Little Hoover Commission and by the State Auditor General’s office in 2005. The program has sometimes taken three years to discharge an approved claim.

When a victim of a crime is treated for his or her injuries by a doctor, a hospital or an emergency technician, the victim is supposed to be provided with a handout on the Victims of Crime program and told how to apply for it. The application must be completed within a year and the total amount that a victim can be compensated is $55,000.

The program is supposed to provide free in-house advocates to aid the victim so he or she can avoid hiring an attorney to press their case. If a claim is approved, the victim is notified within 90 days and can then collect their checks.

But often, crime victims are left to twist in the wind on their own and provide their own legal, medical and rehabilitation services, at their own cost.

Administrative costs add up

Michael Siegel, a Loomis-based attorney, is often hired by crime victims when the approval of their claims is in danger. About CalVCP, Siegel said, “They’re worse than ever. They’ve cut back on service payment amounts for doctors and counselors, for lawyers and for the victims themselves.”

Siegel puts the CalVCP’s administrative costs figure at 40 percent. CalVCP media spokesman Jon M. Myers disputed that. Myers said, “That’s an exaggeration; it’s closer to 20 to 25 percent.”

Siegel disputed Myers’ figures, saying, “They’re passing along some of their overhead to other uses, but it’s still money that should go to the victims.”

One client of Siegel’s is a woman named Krista Clem-O’Sullivan. Her story is tragic. Her husband, John “Scully” O’Sullivan, was murdered in August 2009 on their ranch in El Dorado County. Reported the Oct. 11, 2010 Irish Central:

Ken Zimmerman is on trial in Amador Superior Court in northern California accused of the murder of Irish man John O’Sullivan.

In August of last year, fourteen months ago, John O’Sullivan was found dead in his tractor with shotgun wounds in his back. His neighbour Ken Zimmerman, with whom he had recently had an argument, was arrested and charged with homicide.

According to evidence heard at the trial, O’Sullivan had rammed through Zimmerman’s locked gate and assaulted him before the fatal shooting.

O’Sullivan’s wife, Krista Clem-O’Sullivan, has alleged intimidation of her and her family during the course of the trial.

According to the Oct. 28, 2010 Amador News, a jury “found Kenneth Zimmerman guilty of second-degree murder.”

Krista Clem-O’Sullivan remembered:

We had four young children. My husband was on his tractor when he was shot in the back by the neighbor’s caretaker. This man had been harassing us for years, and he had even assaulted Scully with his truck. No matter what we did, the DA would not press charges on the man.

Eventually, we filed a federal civil rights case, against both the DA and the guy who shot my husband. After the murder, the DA kept our tractor as “evidence.” I asked that they rent one for me. They would not. After my husband was buried, I sought reimbursement for the funeral expenses from Vic Comp. They denied my claim, stating that my husband may have somehow “participated” in the crime. They said that the police report stated that my husband had run over the murderer’s foot with the tractor and slapped him. But you can file an appeal, they said, and we’ll even pay for the attorney.

So I hired Mike Siegel. We went to trial, and it was proven that it was physically impossible for my husband to have done either of those things. So my appeal to CalVCP still hasn’t been heard. I asked why the delay? They’re still relying on the police report, I was told. I said, What about the DA, and the experts, and the jury verdict of second degree murder with enhancements for an intentional act with a gun, and the 40-year (minimum) to life sentence? I am still waiting.

Foreclosed

Krista and her kids have had a hard time. Since Scully’s death, the family has witnessed foreclosures on their homes, the ranch where they all lived together in El Dorado County and the “Lighthouse” in Shelter Cove where Krista and the kids moved after her husband was killed. She is currently staying with Scully’s family in Ireland, living in a trailer.

Siegel says that the program is now further refining their torture:

Recently VOC started requiring personal information from county social workers filing VOC claims for county dependents, or they will return the claim as “incomplete.” They’re asking for birthdates and/or Social Security Numbers of the Child Protective Service workers, saying they need that information to protect the privacy of the child claimant if a CPS worker calls VOC for information on the claim.

In the past 40 years, they haven’t required this. I believe this is just one more way VOC is attempting to stall these applications or make it so onerous that DCFS agencies will stop sending in claims. Of course, this would result in longer waiting lists for the few, underpaid therapists who agree to take Medi-Cal for these kids.”

The maximum amount an attorney can be paid by the Victims of Crime Program is 10 percent of the total victim’s claim (which averages in the $2,000 range), with a ceiling set at $500. That’s now about to fall to $300.

For the past eight years, I’ve followed the VCP’s antics objectively as the state spends considerable money by staffing the program and often ripping off the program itself by snatching their state funding at the end of the fiscal year and kicking it back into the cash-strapped California state General Fund.

I also know this subjectively. After a near-fatal criminal assault on me in 1997, the Victims Compensation Board forced me to spend $40,000 in legal fees, didn’t settle my case until three years after it had been approved and made me suffer another $40,000 in out-of-pocket losses that they refused to reimburse. And this after Executive Director John Gillis, of the Victims of Crime at the U.S. Justice Department, admitted in a letter to me that “the board mishandled your claim.”

Numerous victimized victims

It would be one thing if Siegel and this reporter were the lone critics of the program, woofing at CalVCP because attorneys’ fees were being reduced, or due to this reporter’s unfortunate set of circumstances under a different board at CalVCP. But we are not.

A number of crime victims interviewed by this reporter have cried foul regarding the program. So have former CalVCP staff members this reporter interviewed — in Sacramento, Sonoma and San Francisco counties. And if the program is as great as Bauman claims, then why have there been all the remedial legislation and Little Hoover hearings? As one Little Hoover commissioner involved in those hearings told this reporter, “That program is a scandal; all they seem to do is further victimize the victims.”

That Hoover Commission member’s criticism was echoed by former San Diego Superior Court Judge Larry Stirling at an Assembly Public Safety Committee hearing this reporter attended in the summer of 2003, when three clean-up bills related to the Victims of Crime Program were being heard.

“We had a lot of problems with that program in San Diego County,” said Stirling, also a former Assemblyman who retired from the court in 2003 and is now a counsel with the law firm of Hamilton & McInnis. “It was a crying shame the way some of these crime victims were treated.”

Quintin Mecke, the communications director for Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, who heads the Assembly Public Safety Committee, the legislative body in charge of CalVCP, said he intends to have his boss “look into the matter.” Mecke said he was unaware of anything controversial regarding the CalVCP’s ongoing record.

Executive Director Nauman, whose CalVCP salary pays her $116,606 annually, is attempting to right the ship at CalVCP. “We’re aware of the problems from the past,” said Myers, the CalVCP spokesman. “But Ms. Nauman is an aggressive advocate for victims’ rights and benefits and you’ll see more positive changes ahead at CalVCP.”

Perhaps this is so. Maybe the State Auditor’s report and all the remedial legislation and threats of litigation may have moved Nauman and CalVCP toward a program more responsive to the victims themselves. (Richard Fine, the renowned class-action attorney once considered bringing suit against CalVCP until he found himself in a major case involving judicial corruption in Los Angeles.) But it will be prudent to keep a watchful eye upon them.

Attempts to reach Gov. Jerry Brown for comments on the Victims of Crime Program proved fruitless.

A new piece of remedial legislation is now under way, with Siegel leading the charge. “But we haven’t been able to find a sponsor yet,” he said.

At the very least, a new law should seek to protect the victims’ funds from further looting by the Legislature. Both Myers and Siegel said they would support that.

    Your article above is long over due. Those staff members that brought this issue to the Legislature were severely punished by Senior Exec Managment (i.e. Julie Nauman).

    Attached is an email sent to staff before:

    July 9, 2009

    To VCGCB Staff:

    We know that you have not received any news lately about the status of Romer Cristobal, Cecilia Tarango, Darlene Guidera and Javier Henry-Camacho so we wanted to send this note to you to keep you updated.

    Many have asked us why senior VCGCB management reacted so aggressively to the whistle-blower complaint filed the VCGB Four.

    In February 2009, the same month the four employees started their whistle-blower complaint, Assemblyman Albert Torrico introduced Assembly Bill 1270 (AB 1270). This bill would require the VCGCB, for purposes of meeting the requirement for timely processing of applications, to adopt written procedures and timeframes for approving or denying applications and specific procedures for use in communicating with entities when verifying the required information.

    This bill may have resulted from the 2008 audit of the VCGCB by the Bureau of State Audits. The audit found severe backlogs in processing claims due to the problems associated with CaRES and the lack of system documentation that would help staff manage issues related to system. The May 27, 2009 hearing held by an Assembly oversight committee also revealed that VCGCB uses many cumbersome ad hoc processes to the system’s performance and other key data.

    Perhaps senior VCGCB management feared that the whistle-blower complaint would add fuel to this bill. We have reports that senior VCGCB management is actively trying to kill the bill but is apparently not having any success as the bill is nearing the later stages of the legislative process. We are also wondering why on earth VCGCB management is so adamantly opposed to a proposal that is designed to provide staff with effective procedures for timely processing applications and claims.

    On a final note, the four employees have been on administrative time off for over two months and have been prevented from working any claims. This is costing taxpayers at least $16,000 per month plus other unknown costs related to the investigation of the four employees.

    During this dire economic climate, it’s unconscionable for VCGCB management to waste taxpayer monies in what clearly is a vendetta.

    Stay tuned as this issue progresses.

    Click here to view the status of AB 1270

    p.s.
    Please continue to send the Assembly Committee on Accountability and Administrative Review any information related to issues affecting CaRES, including reports of system down time and any claims over ninety days old. You may contact the committee after work if you wish and leave a message at (916) 319-3600 or you can send them a fax at (916) 319-3650

    The Victims of Crime and Government Claims Board today virtually eliminated compensation for attorneys to represent victims of crime. The Board took the advice of staff that lied to them in three different areas.

    1) The final report stated that the attorneys that file these cases that operate practices that are NOT like contingency practices, when in fact they
    are exactly like contingency practices.

    2) The false rationale for eliminating attorneys is to address a potential shortfall in victim funds when in fact there is at this time a healthy surplus in the program of some $27M. Of course, the July payments to victims have dropped by at least 50%, making the non-victim payout costs
    up even higher than 40%. The balance in the fund will increase, and no one
    factors in AB898. AB 898 is going into its final committee next week. It will raise penalties and fines to put into the “broke” victim fund. The criticism of this bill comes from the public and from analyses that point out
    putting more money into something that is broken is not a good idea, and that the program needs to increase payouts to victims and decrease payments to the bureaucratic structures. Ms Nauman doesn’t want to acknowledge her work in catching up a backlog of several years in 2009/10, and even 10/11 because she doesn’t seem to want to deal with the dive payments are taking and the resulting administrative cost.

    3) The staff lied in their document reflecting comments at the public hearing by saying that no persons would be laid off and no businesses closed when in fact, we laid off a person today, and stated several times in testimony that our business would close if these regulations were passed.

    I expect lies from a staff led by Rosario Marin, but I am sorely disappointed in a Governor I served and contributed to, and in his appointees.

    This program has treated me, the victim, in ways I never imagined possible. The Sacramento District Attorneys Office has never acknowledged the emergency award process, they put me through hoop after hoop getting the “scannable copies” of forms, they have discussed my application I.n the same room as my abuser, they have been unprofessional in every way possible. The DA uses this fund as a carrot..holding it out in front of victims to get the testimony they want for the “win”. Cal VCP is the worst organization I have ever seen in government. They ignore the law governing their organization and they make up their own rules. All they have to say is thing “this program takes a very long time”. When I spoke to a supervisor he refused to tell me the name of his liaison, he said his name was Glen. But he refused to give me his last name. Disgusting waste of taxpayer money. Poorly run, of not the worst of all time, government program.

    Here it is 2017 and they still suck. Delays, long wait times, ignorant and arrogant phone support, they act like you should grovel. This program has ruined my credit with their poor performance not delivering as promised. Same 541t as everyone else . Having to prove your meds were crime related. DOCTORS ARE LICENSED FOR A REASON. STOP QUESTIONING THEM. Aggravated assault victim here.
    I’d much rather have gotten assaulted again than have to deal with calVCP . YES THEY ARE THAT BAD. Meanwhile the criminal felon is out free and I’m still suffering without money. It’s been 5 months. The DA should be embarrassed of their performance.

    Crime victims I have something to tell you and what I have to tell you guts is why the crime board is able to take our money and not a dam thing being done about it and why is because our money are donated from people that pays restitution to their victims yes they can keep our money because it don’t come from that state nor government so we don’t have to wonder how they get away with it that’s hoe but we cant do anything about it but god can and will so we will get our money because he will take care of it how I know? because he told me he would and his word is good enough for me,

    You know people it don’t pay to do others wrong, we should teach our children how to treat others, and that is never do to others that you don’t want done to you, care for others, do right by others, never hurt others, don’t tell others you will do something for them that you know you want do, never take from others like crime board taking for us and telling lies about it because they know nothing going to be done about them taking our money because the money is donated from people that had to pay restitution to other victims, this why they get away stealing our money because it don’t come from that state nor government and never go to court on them because they will lie like dam old dogs and you want win, because when money is donated even if its for us its to them to give us if they don’t well go to court if you want to you never win and they know this that’s why they tell you to go, if they knew you would win they would give you your money and never tell you to go to court, then to we shouldn’t have to go to court for what’s ours its a dam shame, but the people are as low as one can get, taking handicap people money and misusing them, the handicap, and I ask you how low can one go?

    Donnelly: Bipartisan Rage over Gov. Jerry Brown ‘Stealing …
    http://www.breitbart.com/california/2017/05/06/donnelly...
    Gov. Jerry Brown is coming under increasing fire from all sides for ‘stealing’ $1.2 Billion of the cigarette tax money—raised from Proposition 56—and ..Gov. Jerry Brown is coming under increasing fire from all sides for ‘stealing’ $1.2 Billion of the cigarette tax money—raised from Proposition 56—and diverting it into the state’s General Fund.
    Both Republican and Democrat representatives from California’s Congressional Delegation spoke out this week against Brown’s proposed budget—in hopes of convincing him to reverse the diversion of funds in the looming budget fight known to insiders as the “May Revise”.
    This past Tuesday, Congressmen Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert)—who is a physician that represents the Palm Springs area—sent California’s Democrat governor a letter critical of Brown’s plan.
    According to a local Palm Springs CBS affiliate (CBS 2), [t]he letter calls for money from the voter-approved Proposition 56 tobacco tax increase to be used for medical education programs, payments for health care services and treatment for Medi-Cal patients.”
    Reportedly it is signed by 37 of the 53 California representatives, but multiple requests by Breitbart News for a comment or a copy of the congressman’s letter itself went unanswered.
    “We are concerned that your FY 2017-2018 state budget redirects Prop 56 revenues away from Graduate Medical Education programs intended to address California’s physician shortages, as well as Medicaid payment increases intended to improve access to care for Medi-Cal patients,” the letter reportedly read, according to the CBS 2 story.
    advertisement
    On Thursday, Republican Congressmen David Valadao (R-Hanford) and Jeff Denham (R-Turlock)—both from the Central Valley hard hit by the drought where a significant majority are dependent on MediCal— jointly released the following statement:
    “At the cost of families in rural California, Governor Brown has prioritized access to healthcare for those living in urban areas and along the coast over those most in need in the Central Valley. If he truly cared about ensuring all Californians had access to healthcare, he would work to improve Medicaid reimbursement rates for the most prosperous state in the nation. Governor Brown worsened the problem when he went against the wish of California voters and stole the $1.2 billion from prop 56.”
    The link provided in the joint press release—leads to a story on the California Medical Association (CMA) website entitled:  “Brown’s budget steals Prop. 56 revenue,” which excoriates Brown.
    A quick review of the fine print in the official language of Proposition 56 reveals that Jerry Brown is pulling a fast one.  While the funding formula that allows Prop 56 money to be diverted to the General Fund is rather complex, it must first be authorized by the “Board” of the newly created trust fund dubbed the “California Healthcare, Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016 Fund”—and that cannot happen until the tax is at least a year old.  So, Jerry Brown is up to his same old tricks, playing smoke and mirrors with funds he has no control over.
    There is a very limited pathway by which some funds may be transferred directly to the state’s General Fund—and it’s only in order to backfill a shortfall in tobacco taxes based on the falloff in cigarette sales due to the new, higher cigarette tax.  In that case, funds can be used to make up for lost revenue to the state and “affected local governments.”  Other than that, the money is rather tightly prescribed to replace funding shortfalls for breast cancer research and children’s health.
    advertisement
    82% of remaining funds must be transferred to the newly-minted, “Healthcare Treatment Fund”—and from there to all the usual government programs including MediCal, unnamed “access to healthcare” programs and “geographical shortages of services” (which might be what Rep Ruiz dubs the “physician shortage”)
    13% of remaining funds must be used for “the purpose of funding comprehensive tobacco prevention and control programs”
    5% for overhead (unspecified)
    The 82% portion will most likely be devoured by the perpetual MediCal shortfall, but it’s the 13% that is then divvied into so many different pies, it’s hard to know if it will make much of a difference.  All of the grants have some loose affiliation with research or prevention of tobacco-related maladies:
    15% to Department of Education for prevention programs
    5% to the UC system for medical research
    $30 Million to State Dept of Public Health (DPH) for dental disease prevention
    $48 Million to law-enforcement agencies to crack down on cigarette smuggling, which is sure to increase
    $30 Million to California Dept. of Justice (CA DOJ) to enforce laws related to illegal sales or smuggling of cigarettes
    Another $6 Million to DPH for joint use with L/E for existing kids program known as Stop Tobacco Access to Kids Enforcement (STAKE) Act
    $6 Million to Attorney General for cost of increased enforcement actions/prosecutions
    Contrary to the assertions by the powerful medical lobby, CMA, who co-sponsored Prop 56, and who consider Brown’s raid on the revenue to be a betrayal of the intent of the measure, the devil’s always in the details.
    When CMA President Ruth E. Haskins, M.D says,“The language of Prop. 56 was clear – the people voted overwhelmingly in support of improving payments for programs and providers to ensure that patients can see a doctor when and where they need one,” she may be right.
    But she may be guilty of believing the slick sales pitches that her own organization put out promoting Prop 56, because nowhere in the fine print is there any sort of guarantee of higher reimbursement rates—there’s only vague language about addressing “geographical shortages” and “access to care”—and increasing funding to existing health and welfare programs like MediCal.
    It has been said that “money is the mother’s milk of politics”—and there’s nothing like a virgin slush fund to draw out the jackals disguised as suitors.  If Brown raids the kitty, who will try to stop him?  State Controller Betty Yee hardly seems the type to take on the popular, scrappy governor, but who knows?  Between the cigarette and the “pot” money, one thing’s sure:
