Definition of "victim":
- "Victim" is defined by the Arizona Criminal Code as a person against whom the criminal offense has been committed, or if the person is killed or incapacitated, the person's spouse, parent, child or other lawful representative, except if the person is in custody for an offense or is the accused.
- Victims of misdemeanor crimes that occur within the Flagstaff city limits are provided with victims' rights information from the City Attorney's Office, initially via mail. The information is sent to the victim at the address listed in the police report. If you believe you are a victim of a misdemeanor crime being prosecuted by the City Attorney's Office, and your address as listed in the police report is incorrect, or you have moved or someone at the address might intercept your mail, please contact the City Attorney's Office, 928-213-2025, to let us know.
- Information and support may also be obtained from Victim/Witness Services for Coconino County. Victim/Witness Services advocates are available to explain the judicial system, act as a link between the prosecutor and the victim, give case status information, make referrals for social services, provide transportation to Court, escort victims while they testify or appear at hearings and assist in obtaining Orders of Protection or Injunctions Against Harassment.
