To receive reasonable notice of, and to be present at, all court proceedings.
To refuse an interview or discovery request made by the defendant, the defendant’s attorney, or any person acting on behalf of defendant, and the right to set reasonable conditions if you do consent, all consistent with constitutional requirements.
To be heard in any proceeding involving release, plea, sentencing, adjudication, disposition or parole, and any proceeding where your rights are implicated.
To provide information regarding the impact of the defendant’s conduct in any pre-sentence investigation, to have that information considered in sentencing or disposition recommendations, and to receive a copy of a pre-sentence report or plan of disposition, when available.
To   receive  a  copy  of  any  non-confidential record
relevant to the exercise of your rights.
To the prompt return of your property when it is no longer needed as evidence.
