Nature Of Victims' Rights Movement, Origins Of The Movement, Goals And Successes, Victim Impact Statements

This victims' rights movement has many facets, including both liberal and conservative components. Sometimes it conflicts with the prosecution, and sometimes it serves as the prosecution's ally.
