When a victim of domestic violence or abuse sees the offender booked into jail and charged, they often feel a sense of 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 with 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.
