Get notified quickly when an offender’s court status changes.
When a victim of domestic violence or abuse sees the offender booked into jail and charged, they often feel a sense a relief. That relief can sometimes turn to renewed fear when that offender is scheduled for their day in court. Will they be convicted? Will I be safe? Will justice be done? These questions weigh heavily on the minds of victims, but sometimes basic logistical questions weigh heavily as well.
VINE Courts, built into the VINELink.com platform, provides victims peace of mind by streamlining a victim’s understanding of upcoming court proceedings. Victims receive 24/7/365 access to the most up-to-date information about upcoming hearing times, locations, court information, and more, allowing them to focus less on logistics and more on healing.
When a defendant does not appear in court, it costs both money and time. The average cost of a single Failure to Appear (FTA) is $1,400, but FTAs also waste the time of court personnel, victims, attorneys, witnesses, and others. VINE Courts can save judicial systems more than 25% in FTA-related costs while providing victims increased peace of mind during a stressful time.
