Offers an opportunity for a victim to tell the court about the financial, physical, and psychological/emotional impact of the crime on their life. It is a statement, written in the victim's own words, that is considered by the judge in deciding the sentence for the offender. Community impact statements may also be considered by the judge.
A victim of any criminal offence may complete a statement. However, the statement is not considered by the court until after the accused person has been found guilty of the offence.
