Cuccinelli, others want fund to help more kids

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Some officials are hoping a fund set up to help catch child sexual predators can be used to help other abused children.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will join lawmakers and law enforcement officials Tuesday to push budget amendments that would direct some money generated from the fund to his office to fight against child predators and to social services officials to track child abuse deaths.
The fund was set up in 2010 to bankroll Virginia's two Internet Crimes Against Children task forces. It added $10 to every criminal conviction to generate at least $1.8 million annually for the two task forces.
Currently, anything over that amount goes back to the state's general fund that pays for education, law enforcement and other core services
