The innocent victims of crime have frequently been overlooked by our criminal justice system. Too often their pleas have gone unheeded and their wounds – personal, emotional and financial – have gone unattended. They are entitled to better treatment, and it is time to do something about it.
The Uinta County Victim/Witness Program was created to help victims cope with the stress of victimization and to ensure that victims receive the services they need and to serve as their advocate.
