Know your rights.
As a victim of any crime, you have certain rights. Such rights include:
- The right to be treated with fairness and respect throughout the criminal justice process
- The right to timely disposition of the accused’s case
- The right to be protected from the accused
- The right to notification of and the right to attend court proceedings
- The right to communicate with the prosecutor and object to or support any plea agreement and make a statement to the court prior to the acceptance of a plea
- The right to make a statement to the court at sentencing
- The right to restitution
- The right to information about the defendant’s arrest, conviction, sentence, imprisonment and release
At the law office of Koffsky & Felsen, LLC, we represent victims in all court proceedings from the initial meeting with law enforcement through the defendant’s sentencing. Attorneys Bruce Koffsky and Audrey Felsen can help you report the offense, speak to the prosecutor and attend any court proceedings with you, or on your behalf.
If you are the victim of a crime, the court can issue a Protective Order against the defendant. A Protective Order can prohibit the defendant from entering your residence (a “residential stay away”), contacting you, or threatening or harassing you.
If you are a victim and you are or were in a domestic relationship with the person from whom you are seeking protection, you can apply to the court for a Restraining Order. A Restraining Order is a Court Order that can provide relief from physical abuse, stalking, or a pattern of threatening from a family or household member.
If you are a victim and you are not or were not in a domestic relationship with the person from whom you are seeking protection, you can apply to the court for an Order of Protection.
Attorneys Bruce Koffsky and Audrey Felsen can help you determine how to best protect yourself and can assist you in filling out an application for a Restraining Order or Order of Protection. Attorneys Bruce Koffsky and Audrey Felsen can represent you at your hearing for a Restraining Order or Order of Protection and can help you gather all necessary paperwork and prepare for your hearing.
