You have the right to be treated with fairness and respect, to be free from harassment and abuse, to be reasonably protected from the defendant (and any person acting on the defendant’s behalf), the right to privacy, to have your safety and welfare (and that of your family) considered when decisions are made about bail or release, to a prompt and final conclusion of the case, to be informed of conviction, sentencing, and any post-judgment proceedings, and to consult an attorney about these rights.

You also have the following specific rights:
To prevent disclosure of information  or  records  that reasonably could be used to  locate  or harass you or your family, or which disclose confidential information about you, and to be notified of any request for such information.
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.
To restitution for all losses suffered as a result of the criminal or delinquent conduct.
To be informed of the defendant’s conviction, adjudication, sentence, disposition, place and time  of incarceration, detention or other disposition, any release date, or the defendant’s escape from custody or commitment.
