Under the Arizona constitution, victims of a crime have numerous rights. These rights include, but are not limited to, the right to be treated with fairness, respect and dignity, the right to be free from intimidation and harassment, the right to be notified of court dates, and the right to be heard regarding changes in release, plea agreements, and sentencing. In most jurisdictions, the prosecutor’s office has designated victims’ advocates. However, these advocates are rarely attorneys and may not be best suited to effectively convey victims’ wishes. Victims are entitled to retain their own attorneys to protect and assert their rights.
