Victim's Rights

A crime victim, defined under the Criminal Procedure Article of the Maryland Code, is generally defined as a person who suffers direct or threatened physical, emotional, or financial harm as a result of crime. This definition, however, may vary depending on the rights afforded that person and the type of crime committed. Whether you were wronged by a person, a business or even a government agency, the experience may have created stress, fear and confusion in your life. Throughout the criminal justice process, and even after its completion, you may have physical, emotional or psychological distress as a result of your victimization.
