Information For Victims In Large Cases

The Department of Justice is committed to ensuring that victims of crime are an integral part of the criminal justice process. We generally personally contact each victim of the crimes we prosecute. For our very largest cases, where individual contact is impossible, we create case websites for victims providing information, updates and services. A listing of the current large cases in the Northern District of Illinois follows. If you believe you are a victim of one of these cases, please visit this page often view recent case developments.
