ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Moultrie honored victims of crime by proclaiming next week Crime Victims' Rights week.

Friday a crowd packed the courthouse annex meeting room to honor victims such as James Moore and his wife Karen. She was shot six times and killed in a home invasion in October 2007. Moore thanked emergency responders who saved his life and had words of caution.

"To be aware of your surroundings, being sure you have a home alarm system in your house, knowing what's going on around you because we're living in times now that are very bad, nobody's immune to it like I said," said James Moore, a home invasion victim.

Next week is the 25th annual National Crime Victims' Rights week.
