The Special Victims Unit has
veteran prosecutors who deal with crimes against victims such as children
and the elderly. These cases can be very involved and our staff is
dedicated to handling these matters that often require special attention.
Reports of physical or sexual
abuse are received by the State Attorney’s office from either a law
enforcement agency or the Department of Children and Families.
Our Special Victims Unit also
utilizes specialized victim advocates within the State Attorney's Office.
They assist victims and their families through the criminal justice process
and provide other services or referrals to crime victims.
