The Voice of the Victim

In 2012 Virginia's 120 elected Commonwealth's Attorneys

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.
