The purpose of the Victim's Assistance Program at Brazoria County Juvenile Justice Department, is to assure that the victim/s of juvenile crime are apprised of their rights and assisted through the juvenile court process.
To assure that these goals are met, every victim of juvenile crime is sent a Victim Impact Packet. Included in this packet is the name and phone number of the supervising Court Unit Supervisor.
The Court Unit Supervisor or designee will:
Assist victim/s in preparing restitution information and the victim impact statement.
Keep in contact with victim/s who request to be notified of court proceedings.
Assist victim/s in voicing their needs and wishes for disposition of their cases.
Assist victim/s in understanding the legal guidelines used in determining disposition.
Assist and be present with victim/s throughout the court process.
Assist victims who qualify for state funded Victim's Compensation in completing the application.
