Victims’ Rights

Victims DO have rights.  In 2008, voters passed Marsy’s Law that greatly expanded the rights afforded to victims in California.

In addition, Marsy’s Law gives victims rights at parole hearings.  You can look up these rights in the bill’s text under Prop. 9

If you will be attending a parole hearing, and need assistance, support, and/or advocacy please call Crime Victims Assistance Network I-CAN at 916-273-3603.  They have a comprehensive parole hearing support program and can provide you more information about the process.
