The Victim/Witness Program, a division of the Le Sueur County Attorney's Office, provides services to all victims and witnesses of crimes prosecuted by the Le Sueur County Attorney's Office, including those that are not prosecuted due to lack of evidence or failure to identify the defendant. The Victim/Witness Program also works with some of the City Attorney's in Le Sueur County.

Helps people understand their rights and the court process for both adult and juvenile cases
Helps prepare witnesses for a trial
Obtains financial reimbursement through restitution from the offender or reparations from the state
