Position Paper: Victims’ Rights & Pretrial Release Hearings

February 09, 2015

Pretrial release hearings are a critical time for many survivors. Victims must have meaningful notice of such release hearings, including advance notice of the date, time, location, and content of such hearings if they are to be able to exercise their participatory rights. We tackle this topic in our latest Victims’ Rights Position Paper.  While the paper focuses on Oregon law its message is far broader!  Click here to got to our Victim Law Library read the Position Paper.
