Post Conviction Notification Request

The following material contains information about Post-Conviction Victims’ Rights. It is important that you read this information carefully and if you decide that you want to exercise your rights, that you fill out and sending the necessary paperwork (which is attached) as soon as possible. This paperwork will entitle you to certain types of notification now that the defendant in your case has been sentenced. It is being provided to you as part of your earlier assertion of your rights as a victim of a crime.

Post-Conviction Notification entitles you to receive notice and disposition of the following:

  •  All post-conviction review and appellate proceedings,
  • All post-conviction release proceedings,
  • All probation modification proceedings that would impact you, 
  • All probation revocation or termination proceedings,
  • All releases and escapes.

Please complete Section B of the attached Post-Conviction Notification Request form if you want to receive the above described notifications. If you have a designated lawful representative, they should fill out section B and sign their name.

The request for the notice of release and/or escape only needs to be filled out and sent to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office if the defendant has been sentenced to serve a jail term. If no jail time was imposed, then you only need to send your request for notification to the Nogales City Prosecutor’s Office.

If you choose to request post-conviction notification, you must contact the agency you requested notification from if there is ever a change in your address or telephone number.

NOTE: It is your responsibility as a victim or lawful representative to keep you address and telephone information current. Failure to keep this information current will constitute a waiver of your right to be notified in the future.

If you have any questions regarding the type of notice you receive, please contact the agency that sent you the notice.
