That if they need emotion support, intervention, case status information,  or consultation with the Prosecuting Attorney, the Victim Rights Advocate will provide it, in addition to going to Court with the alleged victim.

That they are able to speak with the Prosecuting Attorney before any plea deal is entered into with you in your Domestic Violence case.
