Criminal Docket Finder

November 24, 2009

District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley announces the new CRIMINAL DOCKET FINDER. In accordance with the Victims' Bill of Rights Act of 2008: Marsy's Law, the Criminal Docket Finder was developed to provide victims with information on a defendant's appearance at public proceedings. By logging onto the Criminal Docket finder, a crime victim can check on all future appearances in court. The Office of the District Attorney hopes to assist victims in using this valuable tool. This tool can be accessed at any time from the Home Page of District Attorney's Website.
