The Victim and Witness Assistance Office offers aid to victims of misdemeanor crimes and helps crime victims exercise their rights. Services are confidential and free of charge for both victims of crimes and witnesses to crimes.
Services include case status information, notice of court proceedings, information about the criminal justice system, escort to court proceedings, and moral support in the courtroom.
Other services consist of referrals to social service agencies to assist victims and witnesses, employer intervention to explain lost time from work due to required court appearances, restitution requests, advocacy and support, and release notification when the defendant is released from custody.
