Excerpt
Excerpt: The President?s Task Force on Victims of Crime concluded in its 1982 Final Report that there was a serious imbalance between the rights of criminal defendants and the rights of crime victims. This imbalance was viewed as so great that the task force proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to provide crime victims with ?the right to be present and to be heard at all critical stages of judicial proceedings.? The recommended amendment has not been enacted by Congress, but the report led to a proliferation of victims? rights legislation at the State level. By the early 1990s, every State had enacted statutory rights for crime victims, and many had adopted constitutional amendments protecting victims? rights. Today, all 50 States have passed some form of a statutory crime victims? bill of rights, and 29 have amended their constitutions to include rights for crime victims. At the Federal level, the Victim?s Rights and Protection Act of 1990, and several subsequent statutes, gave victims of Federal crime many of the rights accorded at the State level.
