Stephanie Valdivia Restitution/Education Fund
A few years ago, while under the influence of drugs, Stephanie stole jewelry from a woman. Convicted of the crime, she was sentenced by the L.A. Superior Court to time in a youth detention camp. In the year she spent at Camp Scott, she completed high school at the Los Angeles County Office of Education's Road to Success Academy. She has made significant, positive changes to her life and is determined to stay on a path that will lead her to become a probationary officer in the future. In April 2015, she was released from probation, but owes restitution to the victim. After a summer internship at the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, she is currently enrolled in classes at Mission College. All funds will be used to contribute toward Stephanie's restitution and/or her education.
