On Friday, April 27, 2012, our office sponsored our annual observance of National Crimes Victims Rights Week—this year premised on the theme, “Extending the Vision, Reaching Every Victim.” The focus of this year’s event was on victims of human sex trafficking. As in years past, U.S. Attorney James L. Santelle recognized the accomplishments of several tribal, local, state, and federal colleagues who have distinguished themselves in advancing the interests and promoting the rights of victims in cases throughout the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
