Victim’s Voice

Most victims enter the criminal justice system by chance, not by choice. 

After the court proceedings are concluded, the law gives victims the right to personally address the court and the convicted about their feelings.  This process is called an “allocution.”

The Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office also gives victims the unique opportunity to publicly post their feelings about their journey through the justice system.  The “Victim’s Voice” features victims’ allocutions, press statements, heart-felt letters or anything they want to share.

The Victim’s Voice is a place where victims can be heard – even after the courtroom is clear.
