As a victim or witness of crime, you may check on the status of the case in which you are involved by calling (775) 751-7080, Monday - Friday 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., closed 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. for lunch.
Our office extends victims and witnesses of crime the opportunity to be notified of certain proceedings associated with the case in which they are involved. To better accommodate each individual's needs, the Nye County District Attorney's Office asks victims and witnesses to fill out a Victim/Witness Request Form
and submit it to the front desk of either the Pahrump or Tonopah office location. Please visit the Contact Us
page for office information. Victims and witnesses who fail to fill out the appropriate paperwork will not be informed of important information pertaining to the case in which they are involved.
Victims requesting restitution should complete a Victim Restitution Request Form
and Victim Impact Statement
at one of the Nye County District Attorney's Office locations so that the prosecutor and judge can be notified. The judge has sole discretion whether, and in what amount, to order restitution. Unfortunately, many defendants do not have the financial means to make restitution and will not comply with the court's order to pay restitution. If a defendant with the ability to pay fails to make restitution that was a condition of his/her probation or sentencing, that failure can be considered by the court as grounds for revocation of the probation or the defendant can be held for contempt.
A Change of Address Form
must be submitted if any changes are made to your contact information. The Change of Address Form can be submitted via mail, fax, email, or in person at one of our offices. Our office can also accept any changes in victim/witness contact information over the phone. It is very IMPORTANT that our office has your most current information on file. If any of your contact information changes, please contact us immediately. Failure to report a change in contact information may prevent us from communicating with you efficiently, or at all.
