Victims have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. As a victim of crime or a family member of a victim, you have many rights throughout the criminal justice process, some of which are listed below. These rights must be requested by you before they will be honored.
Victims have the right to:
Including appeal status, parole hearings and/or release dates and to participate in all parole hearings. A victim services representative can assist in requesting these notifications.
Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) provides automatic notification to victims who have registered when a suspect is released from custody. Call 1-877-VINE-4-LA (1-877- 846-3452) to register for notification. Victims must reregister if the defendant is sentenced to state prison.
