Summary: Injustice often knocks twice for the one in four adults who will become victims of crime this year and for the one in three women sexually assaulted during their lifetime only to further endure the uncertainty of a daunting legal system. This book prepares readers to advocate for their rights as victims of crimes, offering the truth about laws currently in place that often fail to offer support by providing assistance and protection. By empowering taxpayers, voters and (potential) victims of crime, this short but valuable guide will help shift our system from one of neglect to one of respect and support. It is time to make the changes to meet the needs of the victims of crime in the community and guarantee their rights through the courts.
