Victim Witness Assistance

The Office of the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Florida (MDFL) is committed to ensuring that federal crime victims are afforded all rights to which they are entitled by law. To accomplish this goal, each office in the district has a designated individual to provide victim and witness support. Our role is to prosecute cases fairly and justly. Services provided to crime victims and witnesses by the U.S. Attorney's Office include: notice of case events; information concerning their rights; information about case proceedings and the criminal justice system in general; referrals to medical and/or social service providers; assistance with travel arrangements; and logistical information concerning transportation, parking, child care, etc.

Questions concerning federal crime victims' and witnesses' rights or information regarding the U.S. Attorney's Office Victim Witness Program can be addressed to the appropriate representative in each district office:
