Protecting crime victims in Missouri

Crime victims and the Attorney General's Office

The Attorney General's Office aggressively works to enforce criminal laws and protect crime victims. Among the cases the office handles are special prosecutions including capital murder cases, defending the state against inmate lawsuits through the Attorney General's Litigation Division and working with state and federal legislators to reform laws that will protect Missourians. 

The office has available a Crime Victims' Rights booklet. The booklet provides information on the judicial process in state and federal courts and court terms. E-mail us for a free copy of the booklet as well as a booklet on Protecting Victims of Domestic Violence. Please include your name, postal address, booklet name and number of copies needed.

To request notification of criminal appellate proceedings, crime victims and witnesses should complete a simple form available on this website. The victim services division of the Attorney General's office will handle your request and notify you of upcoming court proceedings.

To contact the victim services division of the Attorney General's office, please email or call Becca Weddle at 573-751-0309.
