Victim Witness

The State's Attorney's Office protects victims and witnesses as they participate in the court process. Our highly trained advocates are available Monday through Friday from 8:30 – 4:30 pm to answer questions and guide victims and witnesses through the judicial process of criminal prosecution.

Our advocates notify victims and witnesses of court dates, hearings, sentencing's, and other court proceedings. They help prepare witnesses for court and provide a friendly face in the courtroom during emotional experiences.

To speak with an advocate directly, please call:

301-475-7844 x *4522 for Circuit Court cases
301-475-4200 x *4891 for District Court and domestic violence cases
