Description:  Affording crime victims their right to be heard at sentencing is often a crucial step for victims on their path to healing and finding justice.  Victims may exercise this right in a variety of ways, such as by making a written, oral or even recorded victim impact statement; or by filing a sentencing memorandum.  This presentation will discuss each avenue.  The presentation will also address ethical considerations that may come into play when working with victims seeking to be heard at sentencing.
