Summary

Myers, Roslyn (2001). Part I: Victims as storytellers: The importance of victim impact testimony in criminal justice proceedings. Crime Victims Report 5 (January/February): 85, 86, 94, 95.

One of the ways in which the victims’ rights movement has influenced criminal justice in recent years is the emergence of victim impact statements as part of the court process. Victims have deep and strong needs and desires to tell their story, and what they have to say is crucial to a good criminal justice system. Myers discusses the importance of the victim narrative to prosecution, the modern history of victims’ role in criminal justice, and court rulings on victim impact statements.
