A fund to help crime victims and witnesses while they work with the district attorney’s office preparing cases was approved Tuesday by the Commissioners Court.

Crime victims and witnesses sometimes spend several days with the attorney’s office while they prepare evidence and testimony for trials, Assistant District Attorney Debbie Bonner told the court. The fund will help the district attorney provide lunch, travel money and sometimes “even diapers” during the preparation time.
