A Victim Impact Statement is a very important document as it allows victims to directly inform the judge or magistrate how they have suffered as a consequence of the criminal act, and the contents of the Victim Impact Statement must be considered by the judge or magistrate when handing down a sentence.

The Victim Impact Statement should include information on physical and pychological injuries as well as financial and property damage, including the consequences of such.
