New Resource for Serving Child-Victims

November 16, 2012

Just this week, NCVLI published its latest Child-Victim Bulletin titled, “Seeking Release Conditions and Protective Orders That Benefit Child-Victims”.

Nearly all defendants are released from custody at some point during the criminal justice process, and the prospect of release can be frightening for child-victims and their families.  This Bulletin examines common release conditions and protective orders that may be sought by child-victims, which can help ensure the protection of child-victims and mitigate the trauma and fear associated with a defendant’s release.
