Abstract

This note provides an overview of Indiana's victims' rights amendment and associated legislation. The note highlights how, as is common in many states, it is difficult for victims to enforce their rights due to lack of standing in the criminal process. The note advocates that the state of Indiana provide victims with mandaums relief, as well as with the creation of victims' rights ombudsman.

Keywords: Victims' rights, writ of mandamus, victim standing
