If You Were A Victim of Crime, Would You Know Your Rights?

As a victim of crime you must request to exercise certain rights, if not you may lose them. 

If you are a victim of violent crime and you believe your rights have been violated



Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center was founded on the simple principle that victims of crime deserve and require legal representation to enforce and protect their constitutional and statutory legal rights throughout the criminal justice process. 

There is a national movement to bring balance to the criminal justice system by establishing crime victims’ rights legal services organizations in every state.  As of today fourteen states now have crime victims’ rights legal services organizations. Ohio is one of those progressive states.

Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center is the only crime victims’ rights legal services organization in the state of Ohio that provides free legal representation in criminal court to citizens victimized by crime to protect their legal rights.

Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center provides:

Free legal representation to victims of violent crime throughout Ohio to ensure their constitutional and statutory rights are enforced and protected from the time a crime is first reported throughout the criminal justice process.

Free Victims’ Rights Training to hospitals, victim advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors, courts, and the community to promote awareness of crime victims’ rights laws and to ensure consistent systemic implementation of Crime Victims’ Rights Laws.
