State officials are planning to honor Arizona crime victims and their advocates.
A luncheon and awards presentation will be held today at the state Capitol for victims and their families. The event will mark the start of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
State Attorney General Tom Horne and Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery are among those expected to attend.
Heather Grossman, who survived an attempted murder by her ex-husband and now works as a consultant to the Office for Victims of Crime in the U.S. Justice Department, will be the keynote speaker.
This is the 31st year the state has observed Victims’ Rights Week.
