Know Your Rights

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).
