for damage or injury to a victim of a crime exists, a criminal action is pending which
arises out of the same occurrence, the time during which the criminal action is pending
shall not be deemed or taken as any part of the time limited for the commencement
of the civil action.
As used in this section, a criminal action is pending until the court's jurisdiction
in the criminal action is terminated.
