FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Crime victims in Kentucky have a way to navigate the criminal and civil legal system with a new guide, according to the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General.
The Crime Victims Information Guide is part of the inaugural Survivor’s Council’s annual report.
As part of their work in their final year on the council, members created the crime victims guide.
The council says it was created so that other crime victims would know their rights and understand how multiple government agencies interact and what key services those agencies provide to victims.
The council was formed in 2017 as part of the first-of-its-kind survivors’ council in any attorney general’s office nationwide.
Next week, Attorney General Andy Beshear will announce the incoming survivors council members to serve for 2019-2020.
