A message from District Attorney Barbara M. Yook

A violent crime can impact many aspects of a person's life. Not only does crime affect the victim but also their loved ones and sometimes, an entire community. A crime can have long lasting physical, emotional and financial effects.  

Often the needs of crime victims can appear to be overshadowed by the focus on the investigation and prosecution of the accused. The Calaveras County District Attorney's Office Victim Services Program seeks to make the criminal justice system more understandable, accessible and responsive to the concerns of victims, witnesses and the community.

Our Victim Services staff is available to ensure that crime victims and their family members are kept informed and supported throughout the criminal justice process. 

It is my belief that this program can make a real difference in helping victims of crime overcome the physical, emotional, and financial impact of crime on their lives and the lives of their families.

Now is the time to focus our attention on the rights and protection of law abiding citizens in Calaveras County. Justice can only be truly served when victims’ needs are carefully considered.
