Keller J. Blackburn’s Victim Assistance Program offers many supportive services specific to the needs of victims of crime. In addition to ensuring that crime victims are aware of their rights, advocates provide case information, court escort, assistance with victim impact statements, assistance with civil protection orders, appropriate referrals, and information specific to the criminal case, including post-conviction information. Our trained advocates are here to answer any questions or concerns, and will attempt to lessen the impact that crime and the criminal justice process can have on families and individuals.

Here are some resources to aide victims in getting the most out of the Victims Assistance Program.
