$1.7M going to help victims of violence in Louisiana

(WAFB) - Louisiana’s criminal justice reform measures means more money for victims of violence, according to the Office of Governor John Bel Edwards.

The money saved as part of the reforms, $1.7 million, will now go to four groups across the state. A large part of that money will go toward establishing a family justice center in East Baton Rouge Parish.

The center will provide services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and dating violence.
