How can I reach victim services?
Mesa Prosecutor’s Office
250 E. 1 st Ave, Suite 222,
Mesa, AZ 85210
How can I request a modification of the defendant’s release conditions?
The victim cannot file a motion to modify the defendant’s release conditions. The defendant may file a motion to modify release conditions with the court. Then the victim may provide their position or input in writing to our office regarding the motion, or submit a signed notarized statement along with the defendant’s motion, whichever is more appropriate or convenient. Some release conditions require that the defendant have no contact with the victim. In that case, the victim should provide their written position to our office. Please note that the written position should only include the position on the conditions of release, and that it may be provided to the defense if discovery is requested.
What is a stipulation?
A stipulation is an agreement between two parties (between the State and the Defense) that the court adopts.
How can I obtain an order of protection?
I haven’t received any restitution payments? Who should I contact?
If you have recently moved, you must appear in person with identification to update your address with the court to ensure payments will be delivered. If you haven’t moved, contact the court at 480-644-2255 to inquire about the status of the payments.
What happens if the defendant doesn’t make the restitution payments?
If the defendant fails to make the payment, the court will notify them of the delinquency. If they do not respond to the court, a warrant may be issued by the court for failing to obey a court order.
I was awarded restitution. When will I receive the money?
When restitution is awarded, the court will set up a payment plan with the defendant. They payment amounts are determined based on the defendant’s ability to pay. The first payment is generally scheduled within 30 days and are due monthly. The defendant will make the payment to the court; the court will record the payment, process it, and send a request to the finance department to issue a check to you. The court will forward the payment to the address they have on file. If you move, you must appear in person with identification in order to update your address. The process makes 2-3 weeks from the time the payment is made.
I didn’t press charges, why is he/she being prosecuted?
The police investigate to determine whether or not there is sufficient evidence to believe a crime has occurred. If there is sufficient evidence, charges are pursued on behalf of the State of Arizona. Charges are filed by the State, not the victim.
How do I drop the charges?
The State is the one that presses criminal charges against a defendant. The victim cannot dismiss criminal charges.
