VICTIM WITNESS DIVISION
Our Victim Witness Division offers specialized assistance to crime victims of misdemeanor and felony offenses throughout the court process. Coordinators provide information, resources and referrals to appropriate service agencies in our community to assist crime victims during the aftermath of the crime.
The Code of Criminal Procedure, Chapter 56 designates specific rights for victims of crime. Our Victim Assistance Division is devoted in the fight to honor those rights.
As Victim Assistance Coordinators, we are in partnership with the prosecution team. We educate the victims about the judicial process and procedures which include courtroom accompaniment, case status, court proceedings, and assist victims in preparing for trial. We consider it not a duty, but a privilege to assist victims of crime. It is their rights we hold dear and carry as a sword to ensure victims are heard.
To contact a Victim Assistance Coordinator, please call the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office at 936-539-7800.
