Victim Impact Statement: History and Purpose

Time: 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm
Presented by: Janice Sager, Regional Victim Services Coordinator, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Victim Services Division
Julie Jesperson, Programs Manager, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Victim Services Division

Description: Crime victims in Texas have a right to submit a Victim Impact Statement (VIS). Texas law requires the VIS to be considered by a prosecutor before accepting a plea, by a judge before sentencing, and by a parole panel before voting whether or not to release an inmate to parole supervision. This webinar will discuss how this came to be and how the VIS helps to ensure the victim's voice is heard throughout the criminal justice system.
