Victim/Witness

The Rice County Attorney's office works directly with crime victims and witnesses. We treat all victims with compassion and respect as we help you navigate through the processes of the Criminal Justice System. 

It is the right of the victim of a crime to be informed about the progress of the case. The Attorney's office notifies victims when charges have been filed in all misdemeanor and felony cases in the adult and juvenile courts. Victims are also notified of arraignment hearings, preliminary hearings, trials, and sentencing hearings.
