Victim/Witness Assistance

VICTIM/WITNESS ASSISTANCE

Defendants convicted in Lincoln County are ordered to pay a fee that helps fund a crime victim program with the prosecuting attorney’s office. This program assists the attorneys with victims and witnesses for hearings and trials and preparing documentation for court.  Program support provides assistance in applying for victim’s compensation, determining restitution in adult and juvenile felony cases, providing case status information to victims and educating victims and witnesses about the criminal justice system, as well as acting as a referral resource for other agencies.
