Being the victim of any crime can be scary and overwhelming. If you believe you have been the victim of a federal crime, it is important to know your rights and the steps to take. This article will walk through the key things you should do if you are the victim of a federal crime.
The first step is to report the crime. For federal crimes, you’ll want to report it to the appropriate federal law enforcement agency. Some key agencies include:
When reporting the crime, provide as many details as possible – what happened, when, where, who was involved, any evidence or witnesses, and how to contact you. The more info you can provide, the better the investigators can look into the crime.
You may also want to report federal crimes to your local police, as they may work jointly with federal agencies. But be sure to reach out to the appropriate federal agency too.
If you were physically injured in the crime, seek medical care right away. This is important for your health and also to document your injuries. Ask the hospital or clinic for copies of your medical records to keep as evidence.
Save receipts for medical expenses, prescriptions, medical equipment, therapy, and any other costs related to the crime. These records will be important later if you seek restitution.
Try to preserve any evidence related to the crime. For example:
Preserving evidence will help investigators and prosecutors build a stronger case.
Being the victim of a crime can take a serious toll on your mental health. Seek counseling or therapy to help you process what happened. Many victim service organizations offer free counseling services.
Counseling can also help you deal with the emotions that may come up during the investigation and legal process. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.
As a victim of federal crime, you have certain rights under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act (CVRA). An attorney can help advise you on your rights and ensure they are enforced.
An attorney can do things like:
Look for lawyers experienced in federal criminal cases and victims’ rights. Your local bar association can help you find attorneys.
You have a right to be informed about the status of the investigation and any court proceedings. This includes things like:
Federal agencies must provide this information to registered victims. Ask investigators and prosecutors how you can register to receive notifications.
You can also call the law enforcement agency or U.S. Attorney’s Office handling the case for updates. Don’t be afraid to advocate for your right to know what is happening.
For federal cases that lead to conviction, you have a right to provide information on how the crime impacted you. This includes:
This information is important to help the court understand the full impact of the crime when making sentencing decisions.
Most states have crime victim compensation programs that can reimburse victims for costs related to the crime. This can include medical bills, counseling, lost wages, funeral expenses, and more.
To apply, contact your state’s victim compensation agency. You can find contact info here.
Federal crimes may be eligible, but programs vary by state. Apply as soon as possible – there are usually time limits. Keep records of all expenses related to the crime to support your claim.
There are many organizations that provide support services for federal crime victims, including:
Reach out to victim services organizations in your area to learn more about available support. The OVC Directory can help you find local programs.
