The William Van Regenmorter Crime Victim’s Rights Act. P.A. 87 of 1985, as amended, provides certain rights to victims of crime. Crime victims, as defined by law, shall have the right to be treated with fairness and respect for their dignity and privacy throughout the criminal justice process and the right to information about the conviction, sentence, imprisonment, and release of the accused. The victim also has the right to restitution.
An individual who suffers direct or threatened physical, financial or emotional harm as a result of the commission of a crime is considered a "victim." Spouses, children, parents, siblings, grandparents or guardians may also qualify as a victim if the victim is deceased or is physically unable to exercise their privileges and rights as a victim.
Individuals who do not qualify under the definition or a "victim," may receive some notifications. You may also submit correspondence to the parole board for their review prior to the parole consideration process to express your concerns.
You may request notification by completing a MDOC Crime Victim Notification Request form available from the Prosecuting Attorney, contacting CVS, or the MDOC victim services website link.
