Victim’s Rights Laws By State

Victim’s Rights Laws By State

If a state has provided crime victims with rights under their state constitution, I have noted the section where the rights are specified below. To read what your state’s constitution says, do an online search for the state name along with the word “constitution” and the article number listed below.

Whether they provide constitutional protections or not, most states have enacted laws that detail the rights of crime victims. These laws are listed below too.

Laws and links change from time to time. Here we endeavor to have the most up to date legal information and working links.

Please notify us if a link is no longer working or if you become aware of a change of law before we know about it. By working together we can help all victims!
