What is a victim impact statement?

A victim impact statement is a document that victims and their families can use to record the impact a crime has had on them. The victim impact statement will be used throughout the criminal justice system by the prosecutor, judge, probation office, and parole board, to better understand the emotional, psychological, physical, and financial impact of the crime. Please email Lisa Mehrhoff (lisa.mehrhoff@parkercountyty.com) if you would like our office to send you a Victim Impact Statement.
