Through the Victims’ Services Unit (VSU), crime victims and their families are offered support and information to guide them through each stage of the criminal process. Victims have rights, and the Attorney General is committed to ensuring that those rights are protected. The VSU provides appeal notification to victims and their families, as well as assistance and outreach when the Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting a case. To request to be notified of the status of an appeal that the Attorney General’s Office is handling or on a case that the Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting visit: Marsy's Law - Victim Notification.
