The victim still plays several essential roles in the criminal justice system: (1) The individual's victimization, although viewed as a social wrong, still provides the basis for most criminal charges. (2) Police investigators rely upon victims to report crimes and depend upon victim cooperation and information. 9 But doesn't the victim have a constitutional right to participate in the criminal justice system? No. Victims' rights are not guaranteed by the Constitution. "10 In a few cases, arguments have been made that the Constitution confers a particular right on victims of crime; for example, in several cases, women victims of domestic violence have argued that police and prosecutorial policies of refusing to arrest and prosecute their abusers amounted to selective enforcement of the laws against domestic violence, an arbitrary and discriminatory classification scheme in violation of the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
