Legal Rights in the Criminal Justice System

You have rights as the victim of the crime. It is important for you to understand these rights so that you can make good decisions about whether and how you choose to use them.

Your rights as a victim of crime vary depending on whether the case is prosecuted in District Court (Your Rights as a Victim in District Court) or Circuit Court (Your Rights as a Victim in Circuit Court) or if your offender was a juvenile (Your Rights as a Victim in the Juvenile Justice System)

Contact the MCVRC to request information and possibly an attorney to help you obtain your rights.
