Who is a victim of crime?

Any individual who suffers direct or threatened physical, financial or emotional harm as a result of a crime or juvenile offense. Rights apply to the immediate families of homicide victims, or victims that are unable to exercise these rights, such as children. The court may designate someone from the family to exercise these rights.
