Fighting for Victims' Rights

DAwithCopDistrict Attorney Jeff Reisig has made the fight for victims' rights a top priority.  By providing enhanced services to more crime victims than ever before and by consistently advocating for  victims' rights in the courtrooms of Yolo County and the halls of the State Capitol, District Attorney Reisig has helped lead the way in shifting the focus of the criminal justice system back to the victims.

As District Attorney, Reisig launched a pioneering campaign to advocate for victims' Constitutional rights to a speedy trial.  When unnecessary delays and courtroom continuances cause cases to languish in the criminal justice system, victims suffer.  As a call to action, District Attorney Reisig initiated the "Justice Finds No Solace in Delay" campaign to educate the community and remind the judiciary that victims have rights too, and they must never be overlooked.  As a result of this effort, the number of cases going to trial in a timely manner in Yolo County has increased by more than 100% over previous years.
