Valdosta - People in Valdosta gathered to remember crime victims Wednesday.

The District Attorney's office and victim's advocates held a ceremony on the courthouse lawn to honor those who've fallen victim to crimes. The event was part of National Crime Victims Rights Week.

They listened to the survival story of Terri Hundley, who was robbed and raped four years ago. She now shares her story in hopes of encouraging other crime victims to come forward. "There are a lot of women who don't report their crimes, so hearing some of the stories that are told this month, hopefully it will get some of those women who haven't reported their crimes to come out and seek some help and advice," said Hundley. 

The District Attorney's office also honored local law enforcement who help put criminals behind bars and provide emotional support to crime victims.
