§1568.2. Juvenile court for the parish of Orleans; distribution of unclaimed restitution funds; procedure
A. The Orleans Parish Juvenile Court, by a majority of its judges acting en banc, may distribute unclaimed restitution funds held in escrow to elderly persons who have been victims of nonviolent crimes and for whom restitution has been ordered but not paid.
B. For purposes of this Section, an "elderly person" means a person over the age of sixty-two and living on social security income.
C. Before any such funds are distributed pursuant to this Section, the court shall publish a notice in the official journal for the parish notifying those who have not claimed restitution funds due them that such funds are available to them for distribution. The costs of the advertisement shall be deducted from the unclaimed restitution funds.
D. The court shall set aside a reserve of ten percent of the unclaimed restitution funds to provide payment to those who may come forward and claim their monies subsequent to the distribution to elderly victims of monies from the unclaimed restitution funds.
