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.
