Victim Assistance

The District Attorney has an advocate in his office who is available to assist victims of crime.  Our goal is to make your experience with the criminal justice system easier.  I can accompany you to court if you desire to attend the proceedings, keep you informed of dates and times of court appearances as well as the outcomes of each appearance and assist you with orders of protection.  I can also help you to secure payment for any expenses incurred as a direct result of the crime (medical expenses, counseling, damaged property, etc.)  If you have suffered out-of-pocket expense it should be discussed with us, so that the District Attorney can attempt to obtain court ordered restitution. I can also assist with filing an application for compensation through the New York State Office of Victim Services.

*****Please be advised the District Attorney’s Office has a “no drop” policy.  We will make an effort to take your individual situation into account during the process, but once charges are filed through a police agency, the case will be prosecuted****
