New Office of Special Victims Counsel will assist sexual assault victims

Special victims counsels will provide assistance to victims by answering questions about the military justice process, discussing availability of additional victim support services and engaging with the investigation and prosecution processes to help the victim protect his/her interests, rights and privacy.
