If I do not agree with the outcome of a case, in which I was the victim, what can I do about it?
Generally, once the judge's decision has been handed down in a criminal case, it cannot be changed. Therefore, it is very important to contact the prosecutor assigned to the case and discuss your thoughts about the outcome prior to any hearings or trials. If you have a problem with the way the prosecutor handled a case, you may contact the State's Attorney's Office and ask to speak to a Deputy State's Attorney.
