Police have arrested the person believed to have committed the crime against me. What happens next?

Once the law enforcement investigation is complete and they submit the report to the Navajo County Attorney’s office you will receive a letter from the Victim Services Division advising you of your legal rights. Victims have the right to privileged (confidential) communication with their victim advocate. Your victim advocate will act as a liaison between you and the prosecutor and will assist you by providing criminal justice information and other services to ensure that your rights as a crime victim are protected and enforced. To speak with a victim advocate about your case, you can call the Navajo County Attorney's Office for assistance.
