Increasing Awareness About Stalking

While you're probably familiar with the term, there's a lot more you might want to know about stalking.

What are victim's rights at federal sentencing?

Watch below for a very informative video produced by the United States Sentencing Commission covering victim's rights at federal sentencing.

From the site:

"This 23-minute video aims to help crime victims exercise their right to participate in the sentencing process. It features key information about the sentencing process and identifies courtroom participants, explains legal terminology, and demonstrates how victims benefit from participating. A crime victim also shares his personal story about speaking at sentencing, and a probation officer explains how victims can affect the sentencing outcome."
