The Maryland Victim Rights Amendment, also known as Question 1, was on the November 8, 1994 ballot in Maryland as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was approved. The measure established that crime victims have a right to be treated with respect and sensitivity throughout the criminal justice process. The measure also gave victims the right under certain circumstances to be notified of, to attend, and to be heard at, a criminal justice proceeding, as well as a right to be notified of these rights.[1]
