In 2012 Virginia's 120 elected
and their assistants appeared in court on
behalf of victims
of crime in 5,556* sentencing events where a
defendant was convicted of a violent felony,
and 6,349* times where a defendant
was convicted of a misdemeanor offense of
Domestic Violence. In
many of those cases the victims were the most vulnerable members of society,
children unable to speak up, or women too scared to speak out.
