Arizona Law states a "Victim" means a person against whom the criminal offense has been committed, or if the person is killed or incapacitated, the person's immediate family or other lawful representative, except if the person is in custody for an offense or is the accused. (A.R.S. §13-4401.19) Victims' Rights of any corporation, partnership, association, or other similar legal entity shall be limited as provided by statute. A business or neighborhood association has limited rights. A representative from any legal entity or corporation can be kept informed of sentencing date and request restitution. Businesses cannot opt in for Victims' Rights.
