State Attorney, 2nd Judicial Circuit
Protection of Victims and Witnesses
It is against the law to tamper with or retaliate against a witness, victim, or informant in a criminal case. If any person threatens or harasses you because of your involvement in a criminal case, immediately contact your local police agency and the State Attorney's Office.
You may want to seek a protective injunction from the court if you are the victim of domestic violence, repeat violence, sexual violence or dating violence. This is commonly called a Restraining Order.
The Judge can order this person to stay away from you as well as any other conditions necessary for your protection. You don't need an attorney to get an injunction. Contact the Clerk of Court Civil Division, Refuge House, or
the Victim Assistance Unit for more information.
