Victim Services

Protecting victim rights as set forth in the Missouri Constitution is a high priority of this office. Victims are provided many services which are listed below in more detail. Attorney General Chris Koster has additional information on victim’s rights on the Attorney General website.  Our office keeps victims updated on the progress of each case and victims may also track court activity in a case through Casenet.  Victims may also track the status of inmates serving a sentence in the Department of Corrections by accessing www.Vinelink.com
