Amy Merrill, Victim Witness Coordinator


The District Attorney is elected every four years and prosecutes all criminal actions, violations of county ordinances, and county traffic violations that occur in Taylor County. The Victim/Witness Program aids those individuals who have either been the victim of a crime, or who have witnessed a crime and have been called to testify in court.  Victim/Witness Coordinator Amy Merrill keeps the victims informed of the status of criminal proceedings, and elicits the victim’s input into sentencing or plea negotiations. Assistance is also given to those requesting help with Crime Victim Compensation Applications or Victim Impact Statements.
