CRIME VICTIMS' RIGHTS ACT
Enacted in 2004, the Crime Victims' Rights Act gives victims rights in federal criminal cases (18 U.S.C. § 3771).
Moreover, the CVRA authorizes program efforts to help victims assert and encourage enforcement of victims' rights, promote compliance with victims' rights, fund grant programs and other activities to implement provisions, and provides an enforcement mechanism for violations of rights in the Act.
