Post Conviction Services

    After the defendant is sentenced, there are a number of agencies that may be able to assist you.

  •   The Florida Department of Corrections

 If a defendant is sentenced to a prison term, the Department of Corrections (DOC) has a Victim Assistance Program to give you information and advise you in the event of an inmate's escape or release. We will provide them with victim contact information, however, you should contact them as well.

  • Victim Information and Notification Everyday (VINE) Program

    If a defendant is sentenced to probation or Community Control you may contact your local Department of Corrections probation department for information on compliance and/or restitution payments. 

  • Office of the Attorney General Division of Victim Services and Criminal Justice Programs

After conviction at trial, a defendant will often file an Appeal. An appeal is a request for a higher court to examine court proceedings and determine if any errors were made. The higher court can send a case back for re-trial, re-sentencing, or deny the appeal.

The Attorney General's Office has a program to keep you informed if an appeal is filed in your case. For more information you can contact them directly:

  •  Florida Commission on Offender Review Victim Services

     Once a defendant has served his/her prison sentence he/she may be placed on Parole for crimes committed prior to 1983. For crimes occurring after 1983, an inmate may be placed on Conditional Release and be subject to a mandatory term of supervision upon release. This is imposed on selected habitual or violent habitual defendants. An inmate may also be placed on Conditional Medical Release if it is determined that the defendant is permanently incapacitated or terminally ill due to an existing medical or physical condition and does not constitute a danger to himself or others.
    The Commission on Offender Review holds weekly hearings to determine an inmate's eligibility for release. For more information please contact:
