Victim Rights - Navigating the Justice System

In addition to emotional, physical and financial challenges, if you are the victim of crime you may suddenly find yourself involved in the criminal justice system. Navigating the justice system can be confusing or frustrating for those who are unfamiliar with it. The Victim Resource Center (VRC) helps victims of crime exercise their victim rights and provides resources to help them throughout the criminal justice process.
