52:4B-61.  Findings, declarations relative to profits related to crime

  1. 1. The Legislature finds:
    1. (1)The State of New Jersey has a compelling interest in preventing any person who is convicted of a crime from directly or indirectly profiting from the crime or circumstances surrounding the crime.

    2. (2)To that end, the State has established the Victims of Crime Compensation Agency to help compensate victims of crime for their loss.

  2. b.The Legislature declares that it is altogether fitting and proper and within the public interest to provide a mechanism where profits from a crime that are received by a convicted person should be available as restitution to the victim of the crime.
