Case Status Notification Letters

The Morris Victim-Witness Advocacy Office furnishes case information to victims through a series of letters. Victims of crime are provided with case information from the time the case is opened through sentencing. The Office also provides information about parole hearings and informs the victim when the defendant is released from prison. The following events generate automated case status notification letters, when and if they occur:

  • The Initial Contact Letter with Victim Impact Statement
