Do I need to be present for every court date of the defendant?

No, you do not need to be present at every court appearance for the defendant. You are welcomed to attend any and all court appearances if you wish. You will be notified by our office when you are needed. If you have any questions about what will happen at a particular court appearance, you may contact a victim or witness advocate at 309-672-6900.
