Sometimes victims will suffer monetary loss, medical expenses or property damage due to a crime. Should that happen to you, we will advocate on your behalf and ask the judge to hold the defendant accountable for restitution. It is important that you alert your Assistant District Attorney and/or Victim Advocate as soon as possible so that you may complete a restitution request form. Keep copies of all estimates, bills or statements and provide these to your Assistant District Attorney and/or Victim Advocate.
If the Court awards restitution to a victim, the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office will collect payments from defendants and disperse those payments to victims.
