Victim Services

Pennsylvania lawmakers have enacted statutes that protect the rights of victims of crime. 

The McKean County District Attorney’s Office has a Victim Witness Coordinator who provides these services to victims at no cost to the victim.  A few of these services include:

  • A complete explanation of the Criminal Justice System.
  • Timely notification of any changes within your case.
  • Assistance in the reporting of any instances where a victim/witness may be subject to intimidation by the defendant or a third party.
  • Accompaniment to interviews and any court appearances.
  • Assistance and information regarding the issues of restitution and victim impact statements.
  • Verification to employers concerning time missed due to court proceedings.
  • Assistance with the return of property that has been confiscated as evidence.
  • Chair the Victim Advisory Board.

If you are a victim of crime, please contact Victim Witness Coordinator Lisa Schleger at (814) 887-3312 ext. 4 or email lmschleger@mckeancountypa.org
