If you are a victim of crime, your rights do not diminish in a time of public health crisis. It remains incumbent upon the courts to adhere to the legal rights of all participants in all justice processes.
However, the way you receive those rights may look a bit different. For instance, you may be offered the opportunity to provide testimony via virtual means, rather than in person.
If you have questions about how your county is handling victim services and rights during this time, please contact your local victim service agency.
If you feel your rights are being violated, please contact our office immediately.
