Victims' rights laws differ by state, but the majority require prosecutors to stay in touch with victims and their families after conviction with the intent of decreasing the number of return attacks by released or paroled offenders. Most states also mandate that at least a portion of compensation received by incarcerated offenders go to victims, including royalties for creative works such as books or screenplays derived from the crime. Victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, drunk driving, robbery and other crimes should look into their state's laws regarding compensation, entitlement and more.
