YOUR RIGHTS AS A VICTIM OR WITNESS
You have a right to be free from threats, harassment and intimidation. If as a result of your involvement in a criminal case, you or your family are threatened, harassed or intimidated in any way, immediately call your local police and our office for assistance.
You have the right to seek restitution. In appropriate cases, the Judge may order the defendant to reimburse you for your financial loss as part of sentence imposed. Information regarding your injuries or out-of-pocket losses resulting from the offense should be brought to the attention of this office as soon as possible.
**As a victim or witness, it is very important to keep the Police and the Victim Witness Office informed of your current address and telephone number (at home and work) so that we can contact you about your case. If you should change your address or telephone number, please be sure to let us know as soon as possible.
