Victim Assistance

Shortly after a case is charged as a misdemeanor, you may receive a letter and other attached documents from an Assistant District Attorney or intern requesting your input or inviting you to comment on their charging decision and offer.

Additionally, at this point, there are staff members assigned to misdemeanor cases who can answer questions and assist you throughout the criminal process once the case is charged.

If a case is indicted as a felony, you may receive a letter from a staff member advising you that they are available to answer your questions and assist you through the criminal process.

Your Contact Information

In either situation, it is very important that you let us know of any changes in your contact information such as your home and work phone or mailing address so that we can stay in contact with you as the case progresses.

Communication With Defense Attorneys

At any time while the case is pending, the defense attorney or the defense's private investigator may attempt to speak with you.

We cannot advise you on whether or not to speak to this person. This is your decision.
