IX. POWERS OF COURT
RULE 39. VICTIMS' RIGHTS
Rule 39. Victims' rights
b. Victims' Rights. These rules shall be construed to preserve and protect a victim's rights to justice and due process. Notwithstanding the provisions of any other rule in these Rules of Criminal Procedure, a victim shall have and be entitled to assert each of the following rights:
c. Assistance and Representation.
d. Victims Duty to Implement Rights. Any victim desiring to claim the notification rights and privileges provided by this rule must provide his or her full name, address and telephone number to the entity prosecuting the case and to any other entity from which notice is requested by the victim. If the victim is a corporation, partnership, association or other legal entity and has requested notice of the hearings to which it is entitled by law, that legal entity shall promptly designate a representative by giving notice thereof, including such representative's address and telephone number, to the prosecutor and to any other entity from which notice is requested by the victim. Upon receipt of such notice, the prosecutor shall notify the defendant and the court thereof. Thereafter, only such a designated representative shall be entitled to assert a claim to victims' rights on behalf of that legal entity. Any change in designation must be provided in writing to the prosecutor and to any other entity from which notice is requested by the victim.
e. Waiver. The rights and privileges enumerated in this rule may be waived by any victim. Failure to keep the address and telephone number current or to designate such representative of a legal entity shall be considered as a waiver of notification rights under this rule.
f. Court Enforcement of Victim Notice Requirements. At the commencement of any proceeding which takes place more than seven days after the filing of charges by the prosecutor and at which the victim has a right to be heard, the court shall inquire of the prosecutor or otherwise ascertain whether the victim has requested notice and been notified of the proceeding. If the victim has not been notified as requested, the court should not proceed unless public policy, the specific provisions of a statute, or the interests of due process otherwise require. In the absence of such considerations the court shall have discretion to reconsider any ruling made at a proceeding of which the victim did not receive notice as requested.
g. Appointment of Victim's Representative. Upon request, the court shall appoint a representative for a minor victim or a representative for an incapacitated victim, as provided by ARS § 13-4403. Notice of appointment of such representative shall be given by the court to the parties.
