Victim Services

A message from Coconino County Attorney William P. Ring

In the State of Arizona, crime victims have rights guaranteed by our State constitution. I encourage you to become familiar with these rights that are intended to protect you as you navigate through the complex criminal justice system.

The Coconino County Attorney’s Office is committed to honoring your rights and keeping you informed throughout the criminal justice process.  Our Victim Notification Services staff is available to answer questions and provide crime victims with important hearing and case information. Our office works very closely with Victim/Witness Services for Northern Arizona to ensure that the needs of victims are met. VWS for Coconino County provides advocacy services and coordinates the Victim Compensation Fund.

To understand your rights in the criminal justice system, please read the Victims’ Rights Guide. While this guide is designed to explain your rights, it is not meant to replace personal and human contact. If you have any questions after reviewing this guide, I encourage you to contact either the Deputy County Attorney prosecuting the case or the Victim Notification Legal Assistant at (928) 679-8215. 

Working together, I am confident that those who have committed criminal acts against you can be prosecuted without causing you additional unnecessary hardship

Coconino County Attorney
