District Attorney Victim Witness Office
Director: Shelly Hall
Our criminal justice system should do more than provide justice to criminals. It should also provide justice to innocent crime victims. Historically, our criminal justice system has concentrated on protecting and promoting the rights of the accused while ignoring the rights of crime victims and witnesses.
If you are a victim of a crime, or a witness to a crime, your cooperation is vital to the prosecution of the case. We understand that you may not be familiar with the criminal justice process. We also understand that the criminal justice system might seem quite confusing and frustrating. Therefore, to provide assistance to you, we have established a Victim-Witness Assistance Program in our office. Staff members are available to answer your questions and to help provide support during your involvement in the criminal justice process.
The District Attorney's Office is required by law to provide the defense attorney with names, addresses, and telephone numbers of witnesses for the state. The defense attorney may contact you to determine what you know about the case. Should the defense attorney contact you, you have the right to choose whether or not to speak with the defense attorney. You also have the right to have someone from the District Attorney's Office or your personal present during the interview.
Please feel free to contact our Victim Witness Assistance Program. Our staff will be happy to be of service to you.
