What types of evidence should I submit?

The type of evidence you will need to submit depends on the allegations made in your affidavit. There are different types of evidence that can be considered by the prosecutor. Some examples are:

  • Photos or video
  • Screenshots of text messages or social media posts
  • Voicemails or other audio recordings
  • Documentation - Court orders, insurance denial letters, emails, etc.                                                                                                                                     
    *NOTE: if you are requesting restitution (repayment or compensation for damages or injuries) documentation must be provided. (bills, estimates, or receipts for out of pocket expenses) 
  • Witness statement- a signed written statement from a person who actually witnessed the crime. 
    *NOTE: the witness’ contact information is required for the prosecutor to consider witness testimony.
