What crime was committed against you, and how did you “being who you are” lead to your victimization? 2. As a victim, how would your interaction with criminal justice system and the offender possibly affect you? How do you think people would view your crime (for example, blame you or target you more). 3. Explain what can be done to prevent further victimization, such as this.
