Kentucky's  Crime Victims Compensation Board assists well in excess of 1,000 victims per year.  This assistance is in the form of direct payments to medical providers, funeral homes, mental  health  professionals,  or  reimbursements  for these types of expenses incurred by victims or those legally responsible for those expenses.
 

 
Want to know what your rights are as a crime victim in Kentucky? The Office of the Attorney General  is  providing  this  handbook to  you  so that  you  can be educated on the role and responsiblity of  the  local law enforcement,  prosecutor, victim  advocate, defense  attorney, and Attorney General's Office.
 

The  Victim  Impact  Statement  allows you to tell the court the effect this crime has had on you, your  family, and  those  close  to  you. If  the defendant pleads or is found guilty, your statement  will  help  the  judge  understand what the impact of this crime has been on you,

your  family  and those close to you. While you have the right to fill out a statement, you do not  have to  fill  out a statement if it will make you feel uncomfortable in any way. Filling out the victim impact statement is voluntary.
