It is a frightening experience to be the victim of or a witness to a crime. You often feel violated by intrusion into your life and are left with feelings of anger and pain. Victims and witnesses look to the criminal justice system for vindication and justice but all too often find a system which appears to be dedicated to the protection of the criminal.
In response to this, we have created the District Attorney's Victim Witness Program to help victims and witnesses. We are here to answer questions, to keep you informed, to provide referrals to counseling and support groups, and to provide personal assistance when possible.
No criminal can be successfully prosecuted without the valuable assistance of victims and witnesses. I encourage you to contact our Victim Witness Program and make your experience with the court system as pleasant as possible. We are here to serve you.
With kindest regards,
Gwinnett Judicial Court
