The Victim Impact Statement gives the victims of crime a voice. It is  a chance to be heard and tell how the crime has affected you and the people who are close to you.  After filling out the statement you will have told how the crime has affected your life physically, emotionally, and financially.   

During the court proceedings if the defendant is found guilty or pleads guilty, the judge can use the impact statement to help better understand the effects the crime has had on the life of not only you, but the people closest to you. 

If you need any assistance filling out the statement, or have any further questions about it please do not hesitate to call Winchester Victim Witness at (540)-722-7940.
