Crime victims are not just witnesses to the crime. They are real people who have endured a highly traumatic experience which can devastate every aspect of their lives. They often face those consequences alone. Non-profit Victim Rights Center of Connecticut can help protect their privacy & Constitutional rights if the offender is arrested. We also can help victims decide whether to report to the police, and go with them to do so. We help with housing, employment, education and benefits that are disrupted following the crime. It is important for victims to have a lawyer as soon as possible.
