Your Duties As A Victim Or Witness
You are a witness because you have seen, heard, or know something about a crime. You may not think that what you know about the case is significant, but it may be highly important. Many small pieces of information are often required to determine what happens in a criminal case.
To prevent delay and possible dismissal of a case, we must be able to contact you. It is important that you keep our office informed of your present address, telephone numbers, email addresses and plans you have for travel. Please keep us informed of any changes in your contact information.
