Timothy Kempton and Lauren Nweze Prosecutors
Part One: Victim Rights Requested
Victims’ Rights Request Form For Adult Cases
As a victim of crime in Oregon, you have legal rights. Many of these rights go into effect automatically. However, some rights you must request before they go into effect. A victim, the victim’s attorney or if the victim requests, the city attorney at his or her discretion, may assert and enforce these rights on your behalf.
Please check the box in front of any of the right(s) (listed below) you are requesting.
Once you’ve submitted this form, it will be electronically received by the City Attorney’s Office. The city attorney’s office will assume that you do not want to exercise these rights unless they hear from you. If you ever change your mind and decide that you do want to exercise rights that you didn’t yet request, please contact the Beaverton City Attorney’s Office who will work with you to exercise the rights if that is still possible. The city attorney’s office may require your participation if your case goes to trial even if you do not wish to receive additional information about the rights or to exercise them.
**Note – not all rights will apply to your type of victimization. For example, if you are a victim of assault, you would not check rights pertaining to DUI or sex crime.
Or you may request:
(For further information about all of these rights please see the Department of Justice, Crime Victims» Services Division information).

Victim Impact Statement
Part Two: Prosecution / Court Purposes
The Victim Impact Statement is voluntary. It is a public document and subject to disclosure to the defendant or his attorney through discovery.
If the defendant is convicted and you choose to tell the Court about your experiences, you may do so in a variety of ways. You can personally make your statement to the Court by speaking at the sentencing. If you are not comfortable with this option, you may complete the victim impact statement form and submit it to the City Attorney’s Office. The City Prosecutor will present this statement to the judge at sentencing.
Written or spoken statements may become a part of the official court record. The judge, the prosecutor, the defendant, and the defendant’s attorney have access to your statement when it is presented to the court.
