The most common rights the victims now have are: (1) the right to be notified about developments in the case; (2) the right to allocution, and (3) the right to appeal court rulings that violate their rights.
DISCUSS THE FOLLOWING:
Do you agree OR disagree that victims should be allowed to participate in the criminal justice process or should the government be the “objective” arbiter of justice?
