How do I find out information about a case?
A prosecutor will normally be assigned to a case after an investigative report is received from the York County Sheriff’s Office, Poquoson Police Department, or Virginia State Police and the defendant has appeared in court for arraignment. This may take several days.

Due to caseload, the prosecutor on any given case may not contact victims or witnesses in a case until 2 to 3 days before the court date. Victims or witnesses can call the local Victim-Witness Assistance Program at any point in the criminal justice process to get information or discuss concerns about their cases. Contact the Victim-Witness Assistance Program.
