SESSION 3: Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI) Speaker Series
- VICTIMS RIGHTS: THE POSITIVE IMPACT THEY CAN HAVE Just as the impact of crime on victims continues long after trial so too does victims participatory status continue through the long tail of criminal justice including the parole process. This status is codified in numerous rights afforded to victims, including the rights to be notified, present and heard at various post-conviction stages, including during parole. Ensuring these rights are meaningful is critical not only for victims but also for the proper functioning of our systems and improved outcomes for our communities. This session will identify the most common victims rights during the parole process, and discuss how to ensure that they are timely and meaningfully afforded. Speakers are from the National Crime Victim Law Institute (www.NCVLI.org), a nonprofit agency that actively promotes balance and fairness in the justice system through crime victim centered legal advocacy, education, and resource sharing.
