The Victim Coordinator for Pembina County works closely with the State’s Attorney and Law Enforcement Officials to ensure that the rights of victims are protected, pursuant to Marsy's Law. 


Marsy's Law

Under "Marsy's Law," victims of a crime have certain rights, but these rights must be asserted. You can assert your rights to the law enforcement officer at the time of the initial response or anytime thereafter by contacting the prosecuting attorney's office.

Victim Responsibilities

Although a victim has many rights under Marsy's Law, the victim also has certain responsibilities. A victim is responsible for:

  1. Affirmatively asserting your Marsy's Law rights.
  2. Providing contact information. You must provide accurate contact information to the prosecuting attorney's office and notify the prosecuting attorney's office of any changes to that contact information. You may also be required to provide up-to-date contact information to other agencies, such as the ND Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation.
  3. Registering to receive automated notifications. Many of the notifications a victim is entitled to receive are available by registering with ND SAVIN. Registration is free and the notifications are confidential. You can register to receive notifications by telephone, text message, email, or a combination.
