98% of crime victims report that they do not know their rights. 

                                                    Knowledge is power.

Missouri, like many states, has rights to protect victims of crime and violence. Knowing your rights can make your experience with the criminal justice system better. According to Article 1, Section 32 of the Missouri State Constitution, you have the right to:


  • Be informed about the crime

  • Information about the criminal justice system

  • Be present at all criminal justice proceedings at which the defendant has such right, including juvenile proceedings where the offense would have been a felony if committed by an adult;

  • Be informed of charges filed, preliminary hearing dates, trial dates, continuances and case dispositions;

  • A speedy disposition and appellate review of case;

  • Request restitution;

  • Reasonable protection from defendant or persons acting on behalf of the defendant;

  • Information about the release, escape, recapture or death of the accused while in confinement;

  • Be provided with a secure waiting area for court proceedings.


This is just a brief overview of your rights. A full description is available here.
