A victim is defined as a person who has suffered physical or emotional harm, property damage, or economic loss as a result of a crime.
Although a victim of crime is not a party in criminal proceedings, they play a vital role in the criminal justice process. Their testimony is a very important part of the prosecutor’s case against the accused
Victims of crime should be able to exercise their rights while an offence is being investigated or prosecuted and while the offender is going through the corrections or conditional release process.
If a person is afraid that an individual (the defendant) will harm them, or their children or their property, they can seek a peace bond or recognizance.
A peace bond is a court order that requires the defendant to “keep the peace” for a certain length of time and to obey any other conditions of the peace bond. A peace bond is not a criminal conviction.
