Victims of the Baptist Foundation of Arizona - Victims' Rights that Apply at the Sentencing Phase
You have the right to have your views included in the pre-sentence report. You may write a letter or complete a Victim Impact Statement questionnaire (click on "Victim Impact State Questionnaire" button on this website). Whichever format you choose to use, to ensure your information is included in the pre-sentence reports, you must mail your statement and any attachments to the pre-sentence investigator at Maricopa County Adult Probation Dept., 111 S. 3rd Ave, 6th Floor, West Court Building, Phoenix, AZ 85003, Attn: Shani Martinez. If you would like to speak with the pre-sentence investigator, you may contact her at (602) 506-3829.
You have the right, upon request, to receive a copy of the pre-sentence report, except sections that are made confidential by law. (The defendants may also receive a copy of the report, including any written or verbal statements you have provided to the pre-sentence investigator.) To receive a copy of the report, you may request it from the trustee, to whom copies will be provided.
You have the right to be present and heard at sentencing; you may present evidence, information and opinions about the offense, the defendant, the sentence, or your need for restitution.
If, at sentencing, the Court orders restitution to be paid to you, you may file a restitution lien against any property the defendant owns.
