About the organizer

 Justice For Homicide Victims (JHV), a non-profit organization that provides support in dealing with the pain and suffering associated with the homicide of a loved one when the victims’ survivors are usually totally misunderstood by their friends and relatives. We assist homicide victim survivors by informing them of their rights under current laws and provide support of victims who fight for their rights. 

Additionally, we look to educate the public about  the real truth about our criminal justice system because  the people of this country must understand that the victim has no legal standing whatsoever or representation in a criminal trial, whereas the accused is represented. Knowing this, the people will be moved to change our laws.

When a person realizes that he or she is raped, shot or left for dead, as a victim you may not even have the right to testify at the trial. If they are murdered they will probably put the victim on trial and no one has the duty or the right to represent that victim. When the accused is sentenced, the sentence pronounced by the judge is not true as each criminal becomes eligible for parole in one-half to one-third of the length of the sentence.


Moreover, we help in coping with a complex legal system and law enforcement officials, providing an understanding of their role in the criminal justice system.

Other resources such as counseling and referrals to appropriate agencies set up by the state for various forms of assistance are also available.

Lastly, we offer knowledgeable advice and involvement in the arraignment, preliminary hearing and trial of the accused, with members of our organization attending sessions whenever possible.
