Victims' Rights Request Form for Adult Cases
As a victim of crime in Oregon, you have legal rights. Many of these rights go into effect automatically. However, some rights you must request. The city attorney’s office will assume you do not want to exercise these rights unless they receive this form. If you have questions, call 503-526-2215 and ask to speak with a Victim Advocate.
* Critical stages include, but are not limited to: trial, release hearing(s), plea and sentencing.
** Person crimes: Assault, Reckless Endangerment, Physical Harassment, Intimidation.
*** Representation: may agree to the request and/or may have a district attorney or advocate present.
For further information about all of these rights, please see Department of Justice Crime Victim and Survivor Services.
To answer the next three questions, please read the after a crime occurs and crime victim bill of rights pages.
The Victim Impact Statement is voluntary. It is a public document and subject to disclosure to the defendant or the defendant’s attorney.
You may choose to tell the Court about your experience through a victim impact statement. You can personally make your statement to the Court by speaking at the sentencing hearing, or, if you are not comfortable with this option, you may submit a statement in writing.
Written or spoken statements may become a part of the official court record. The judge, the prosecutor, the defendant, and the defendant’s attorney have access to your statement. As you consider preparing your statement, consider these questions as a helpful guide to frame your statement and stay on point.
