Crime Victim Services

If you have been a victim of a crime, the Andrew County Prosecuting Attorney’s office is here to serve you and answer your questions.
After criminal charges have been filed, there may be several court dates ahead for a defendant before the defendant decides to plead guilty or request a trial. One of these court dates could be a docket call. A docket is a list of cases as they appear on the court’s calendar. Defendant appears at a docket call in court as their case appears on the docket. At that time, the defendant may set a date for a plea or set a date for other legal action.
If you attend any court proceeding, please report to our office first, so we will be aware that you are present in the courtroom.
You may be contacted by the defense attorney or a private investigator hired by the defense attorney. We cannot advise you to refuse to speak with persons connected with the defendant, but please know that you do have the right to refuse if you so desire. Additionally, you may request that the prosecuting attorney be present when you are questioned. We know the court process can be a confusing and frightening time for crime victims. If you have any questions or need assistance of any kind, please contact the prosecuting attorney’s office directly.
