The Georgia Office of Victim Services Victim Impact Sessions
The State Board of Pardons and Paroles and the Georgia Office of Victim Services are engaging crime victims through Victim Impact Sessions. Victim Impact Sessions are meetings between a Parole Board Member and crime victims from the judicial circuit. The Victim Impact Sessions concentrate on cases that the Georgia Parole Board is about to review and determine if parole will be granted. Information provided by victims is added to the case files of offenders that the five-member parole board will review. The meetings include opportunities for the Georgia Office of Victim Services’ staff and the Board’s clemency staff to meet with the district attorney’s staff and their victim’s staff to strengthen victim services and to answer questions about the parole process.
