Join the Minnesota Alliance on Crime and the Crime Victims Justice Unit at the Office of Justice Programs for the Business Victims Roundtable, a free online discussion specifically for prosecutors and prosecution-based victim/witness advocates.

Friday, April 10, 2020 from 9:00 to 11:00 am

What is a "business victim" and what rights do they have in the prosecution process? How should prosecutors’ offices treat them compared to victims of person crimes? Given that their "loss or harm related to the crime" is financial, are they and should they be treated like other property crime victims?

Approaches vary across the state, with some confusion as to the responsibilities of prosecutors’ offices. This roundtable invites victim service professionals to discuss the practices in their office, the challenges in managing these types of victims and ensuring their rights are upheld, and promising practices that are emerging. Staff from the Crime Victim Justice Unit at the Office of Justice Programs will provide an overview of the crime victim rights statutes that apply to business victims and share their perspective and experiences with business victim practices and cases. Prosecutors’ offices that have grappled with this issue are strongly encouraged to attend and share their experiences and practices.

We would very much like to hear from you before the event to help the Business Victims Roundtable to meet your needs.

Please email the following to Bobbi Holberg at bobbi@mnallianceoncrime.org any questions you might have and/or the following by Monday, April 6th:

· What challenges do you face in working with business victims?

· What are your goals for the discussion?

· Do you offer business victims an “opt-in” option for notification?

· How do the needs of business victims differ from individual victims?

· What else do you want to know about the statutory obligations when working with business victims?

Thank you!
