Victims Rights

Rights of Victims in Juvenile Court Delinquency Proceedings:
The law also allows the victim automatic rights when the youth is taken into custody as well as when the youth is adjudicated (plea of guilt) and at disposition (sentencing). There are several additional rights that must be requested by the victim. It is important that victim(s) contact the Juvenile Division to discuss these matters with the Victim Advocate {503) 434-7512. In order to fully protect victim rights, the victim must keep the District Attorney's Office/Juvenile Division updated with contact information. The voice of the victim(s) of crime is encouraged and valuable.
