A woman who suffered domestic abuse has been compensated through the Louisiana Crime Victims Reparations Fund.

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington presented a check to 62-year-old Velda Magana who was injured in a domestic violence incident in April. She had to go to the emergency room and spend a little time in the hospital.

She applied to the Louisiana Crime Victims Reparations Fund, and with assistance from Bossier deputies, she received a check that will help with expenses.
