The Victim/Witness Assistance Program operated by and located in the Madison County Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, helps insure that crime victims and witnesses receive fair and compassionate treatment while participating in the Criminal Justice System. Victims and witnesses have a very important role in the prosecution of cases. This process can be frightening and frustrating. Many victims and witnesses are not familiar with the Criminal Justice System. We are here to make this experience easier for you and to support you through the entire process. 

Call the Victim/Witness Program if:

  • You have been the victim of a crime.
  • You have a question about your role as a witness.
  • You need assistance filing for a protective order.
  • You would like an explanation of court procedures or a tour of the courtroom before you testify.
  • You would like someone to escort you to court.
  • You want assistance in filing for compensation under the Virginia Victims Fund.
  • You need a referral to community service agencies for counseling, housing or other services.
  • You are not receiving restitution payments that were ordered by the court.
  • You have received crime related threats or harassment.
  • Your personal property is being held as evidence, and you want to know if you can recover it.
  • You need information regarding the status of your case.

*Threatening a victim or a witness is a crime in Virginia. If the defendant or anyone else threatens you in regard to your testimony, immediately call your local Sheriff's office or Commonwealth Attorney's office and notify your Victim/Witness Advocate.
