    Maine Victim Witness Advocates
    Our Mission
    In accordance with the Federal Victim/Witness Protection Act of l982 governmental Victim/Witness Programs in Maine have been developed to:
    enhance and protect the necessary role of crime victims and witnesses in the criminal justice process and
    to ensure that the government does all that is possible within limits of available resources to assist victims and witnesses of crime without infringing on the constitutional rights of defendants.
    IN MAINE LAW…..T30-A Section 460 Victim and Witness Support
    Each county is encouraged to establish a victim and witness support program to assist the victims and witnesses of criminal offenses in the prosecution of those offenses. Each county is further encouraged to hire, train and provide support staff to a qualified person or persons to carry out the victim and witness support program. The district attorney for the prosecutorial district in which the county is located shall administer any program established under this section.
