Victim Assistance Program

As a victim of a crime it is easy to feel you have no rights.  The Victim Assistance Program is here to:

  • Give you moral support by providing someone with whom you may talk.
  • Help you if you are intimidated, harassed or afraid.
  • Inform you of the status of your case.
  • Give you notice of court hearings and procedures.
  • Provide an orientation to the courtroom setting.
  • Provide a companion to attend court with you and provide emotional support.
  • Refer you to social service agencies and other groups and individuals who can help you with personal problems resulting from the crime.
  • Assist you with solving problems caused by the necessity of court appearances.  For example: contact your employer if you need to miss work.
  • Inform the prosecuting attorney of your feelings about the case and any financial losses you may have suffered.
  • Provide you with the information regarding parole of the defendant and accompany you to the parole board if you desire.
