Victims and survivors who have completed the Victim Impact Statement felt it gave them a greater opportunity to participate in the criminal justice process.
After the defendant has been indicted, the Victim Assistance Coordinator (VAC) in the prosecutor’s office has the responsibility to provide a Victim Impact Statement form to victims and survivors. After you complete the Victim Impact Statement, return it to the Victim Assistance Coordinator. He or she will send it to criminal justice professionals for consideration in making decisions about the defendant. Note: The Victim Impact Statement is not a legal document; it is not an affidavit and does not need to be notarized.
