YOUR RIGHTS AS A VICTIM….
Florida Statute 960.001 guarantees that victims of crime, including the next of kin of homicide, suicide survivors, are entitled to certain basic rights, including but not limited to, the right to be informed of your rights, to the extent that these rights do not interfere with the constitutional rights of the accused.
If you have recently been the victim of a crime, you may be feeling alone and in need of intervention.
