Victims of Crime

I put up a lengthy post about Victims of Crime rights and remedies at the DAY IN COURT blog.

Basically, there are some meaningful rights and remedies in the states and territories, including Guam, but not in the CNMI.

Here, we have Karidat, a private agency, pulling its weight and more; but this is not enough. We need remedies available through the US Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime. But to take advantage of those remedies, we need a Legislature that will pass the needed laws and appropriate funding for a real agency.

Here is a chance for us to start trying to push for more help for victims of crime.
