Victims Also Have Rights [Infographic]

We’re all aware of the Miranda rights; they’re rattled off in just about every cop show these days. But what about the victim’s rights? Sure, criminals and the accused have rights; the right to remain silent, the right to an attorney, etc. ┬áBut what about those who have committed no crime and were simply victims?

Turns out there are a few victim-specific rights that help keep them safe, informed, and heard when it comes to what’s going on with offender’s trial, prison-sentence (if any) and potential release. In 1996 Mary Byron, was shot six times by her rapist after he was released from prison. Byron was never informed of his release. This tragedy spurred the creation of VINE, the Victim Information and Notification Everyday. This system keeps victims notified and alerted to any changes in the custody of an offender in order to keep them safe and informed.
