Victim Impact Statement- Click HERE
The Victim Impact Statement allows you to tell the court the effect this crime has had on you, your family, and those close to you. If the defendant pleads or is found guilty, your statement will help the judge understand what the impact of this crime has been on you, your family and those close to you. While you have the right to fill out a statement, you do not have to fill out a statement if it will make you feel uncomfortable in any way. Filling out the victim impact statement is voluntary. If you decide to complete the statement, please submit it to the 11th Judicial Circuit’s Victims’ Advocate, Leticia Newton as indicated at the bottom of the form.
