Practical Considerations for Victim Advocates: Offering Support When Cases Are Declined for Prosecution

Charging decisions are a complex part of the criminal justice process; if a victim’s case will not be prosecuted, such a decision can cause retraumatization and produce strong emotions for the victim, including disillusionment with the criminal justice process. A victim advocate’s support can guide the victim on the path to closure, no matter the prosecutorial decision.

Sexual Assault Investigators

Our Mission

Funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, the Sexual Assault Kit Initiative aims to create a coordinated community response that ensures just resolution to sexual assault cases. Through this program, funding is provided to support multidisciplinary community response teams engaged in the comprehensive reform of jurisdictions approaches to sexual assault cases resulting from evidence found in previously unsubmitted sexual assault kits.

This Web site is funded in whole or in part through a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice. Neither the U.S. Department of Justice nor any of its components operate, control, are responsible for, or necessarily endorse, this Web site (including, without limitation, its content, technical infrastructure, and policies, and any services or tools provided).
