Many victims experience financial loss as a result of a crime. This includes medical bills, prescriptions, counseling expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages from being physically unable to work, property damage, property loss, or property never recovered. You should itemize and document your losses as soon as possible for our office. This should be done in the Victim Impact Statement and Losses form we mail to you initially. Present any further bills or documentation to the Assistant State Attorney as soon as it becomes available. We will then ask the Judge to order the defendant to pay the appropriate restitution.

    It is important to note that a Judge's order for a defendant to pay restitution does not guarantee payment. Many defendants are unable to make required payments or may be incarcerated and unable to pay.



Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records.  If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity.  Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
