Other Resources

The Ohio Crime Victims Rights Toolkit is a self-help resource for Ohio and federal crime victims. It was created by the Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center and includes nearly everything victims need to know about their rights, from the time of first report to a hospital or police through the investigation, prosecution, and post-release control (the period after which a perpetrator is released from prison).
