The actual victim of the crime is the only one who has the right to notification except in the case of a homicide or a minor child. In the case of a homicide RSMo. 595.200 provides for the family members to be notified and defines family members as a spouse, child, sibling, parent, grandparent, or legal guardian. The same family members have the right to notification if the victim is a minor child.

The Department of Corrections must provide the victim with notification of parole hearings, results of parole hearings, escape, death, release to the community, commutation or pardon.
