Victims' rights Omnibus: variety of provisions include modernization of language and technical corrections. Most notably, includes provisions for victims in monetary judgments in a civil action. In those circumstances, a monetary judgment cannot be paid to a person who is or was previously incarcerated in the Department of Corrections before all restitution and incarceration costs owed by the person are paid, if the monetary judgment is against the state, a political subdivision, a correctional facility, or officer or agent of a correctional facility. If the monetary judgment is not sufficient to pay both restitution and incarceration costs owed, the judgment must first be used to pay any outstanding restitution. Bill also provides victims with the right to file a pre-conviction restitution lien and requires that the prosecutor notify victims of that right.

HB2593 (2014 legislative session)
Death; post-conviction; appellate proceedings; dismissal (abatement)
In light of the recent high-profile death of convicted killer, Aaron Hernandez, I wanted to highlight Arizona's bill preventing the dismissal of the conviction in situations such as this. Arizona's recent law change (in 2014) became the first in the nation that provides that on a convicted defendant's death, the court shall dismiss any pending appeal or post-conviction proceeding. it further requires that a convicted defendant's death does not abate the defendant's criminal conviction or sentence of imprisonment or any restitution, fine or assessment imposed by the sentencing court.
