LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Crime Victims Reparations Board has awarded $322,427 in reparations to victims of crime.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel reported Thursday that the reparations were made to victims in 138 new cases in June. Additional expenses were paid in 24 previously submitted cases.

The Crime Victims Reparations Program provides compensation for the unexpected expense of victims of violent crimes, including compensation for medical treatment, mental health counseling, lost wages and funeral costs. Most awards are limited to $10,000 or less, but those receiving catastrophic injuries can received a maximum award as high as $25,000.

Pulaski County received the highest amount for June, $106,061. Craighead County received $27,394 and $20,863 went to Washington County.

In 2011, the board awarded more than $3.8 million to victims of crime in Arkansas.
