Prosecuting Attorney

​The Special Victims Team (SVT) was created in 1998 to prosecute special circumstance cases such as rape and child abuse. The SVT is designed to ensure that dedicated legal expertise and specialized victim resources are available to better serve the needs of the victims in these types of cases.

The SVT handles referrals for offenses where the victim is a minor (under the age of 18) or a vulnerable adult due to age or disability, and referrals where the alleged crime is considered a sexually-motivated offense. The Special Victims Team is a partner in the Monarch Children's Justice and Advocacy Center, a program that co-locates and coordinates a variety of investigative and social services for child victims of abuse and neglect. The SVT consists of two attorneys, one paralegal, one legal assistant, and one victim advocate.
