Victim's Rights

Georgia law gives victims of crime the right to be notified of court proceedings; offender release dates; and when the offender is placed on probation or parole. Victims may also be qualified to receive compensation for injuries sustained. To be eligible, the victim must give a current address and phone number. Post office boxes are not adequate for the report. Victims may also be asked to give their addresses and phone numbers to any of the following: the Douglasville Police Department; the Douglas County Sheriff's Office; the Douglas County District Attorney's Office; the Georgia Department of Corrections; and the State Board of Pardons and Parole.
