The Stark County Prosecutor’s Office, Victim/Witness Division began in 1975, making it the oldest Prosecutor-based Victim Assistance program in the State of Ohio. This Division has a victim advocate specifically assigned to domestic violence cases. The job of the victim advocate is to keep the victim informed about all aspects of prosecution. The advocate will also assist domestic violence victims and their families with finding social service resources in the community, such as temporary housing and domestic violence counseling.
