Rights of Victims
It happens every day in California: regular people become victimized and subjected to the criminal justice system. Navigating the criminal justice system as a victim can be confusing, overwhelming, and terrifying. Crime victims rarely hire a lawyer. This is because many victims of crimes believe the district attorney prosecuting their case represents their interest. This is a slight misconception. The district attorney represents the government, which in turn advocates for the people of California. That does not necessarily mean the state and district attorney are advocating your individual interests.
As a victim of a crime, it is imperative to hire a crime victim’s attorney to assist you in navigating the criminal justice system. It is important for the victims of crimes and their loved ones to know that there are certain rights enshrined by the California Constitution. The purpose of these rights is to preserve and protect the right of crime victims to make sure that justice is met and that crime victims have a meaningful role in California’s criminal justice system. Too often prosecuting attorneys and defense attorneys take advantage of crime victims to advance the attorney’s interests. Having a crime victim’s attorney will ensure that your interests are advanced in the manner you seek fit.
