AbstractExtract:Mendelsohn (1963) describes victimity as being the opposite of criminality. Criminality refers to the state, quality, or fact of being criminal. Therefore, victimity refers to the state, quality or fact of being a victim. The purpose of this chapter is to describe what this means in an applied sense - what victimity involves as victims enter the criminal justice system and a record of evidence is created.
