Will this violate the due process rights afforded to the accused in the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments?
No. If there was a conflict with the 5th or 14th US Constitutional Amendments there would be libraries full of case law from other states and federal cases supporting that claim. Instead, there is not ONE case that exists, which shows that there is a conflict, perceived or otherwise.
Under CACR 22, if at any juncture in the criminal justice system the defendant’s and the victim’s rights were at direct odds, the court would have the ability to weigh both sides and make a determination about which rights prevail. That’s what the court does now, but currently they’re weighing statutory rights against constitutional rights, so the scales are automatically tipped in a defendant’s favor. CACR 22 puts these rights on an even par.
