The recent high profile case involving Stuart Hall who was sentenced to 15 months after pleading guilty to indecently assaulting 13 girls, underlines the basic right that victims have to make a criminal compensation claim.

The Criminal Claims Bureau based in Harrogate says that even if the events happened many years ago, as in the case of the veteran BBC broadcaster, victims may still be eligible to claim for compensation either through an application under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme or by way of a civil claim against the organisation the victim feels is responsible.

At least six of Hall’s victims are believed to be taking legal action both against Hall and the BBC where some of the assaults are alleged to have taken place.
