The Victim/Witness Office (Victim/Witness Assistance Program) is governed by Chapter 950 of the Wisconsin State Statutes and is supervised by the District Attorney.
In recognition of the fact that victims and witnesses have rights, we work to ensure that all victims and witnesses are treated with dignity, courtesy, sensitivity, and respect.
We are a source of information and support and act as liaison with the prosecutor and advocate for victims and witnesses of the criminal and/or juvenile justice system. We provide information to victims of juvenile and adult crimes of their rights through the court process. We ensure that the victim's voice be heard at the time of the sentencing hearing (this may be written or oral). We also gather restitution information and prepare a restitution report for the court requesting that the victim be reimbursed for their losses.
