Last summer we had a push for victims to update their mailing addresses from cases that are due restitution. This morning I noticed one of the victims who updated their mailing address will be receiving checks of $300 this month and the next 2 months. This was from a 2009 case.

If you are a victim in a case and have moved to a new address please update your mailing address with the Clerk of Courts office by emailing:

[email protected] or dropping off your updated address in person at the Brown County Clerk of Courts office with a related case # or defendant name.

We would like to get as much restitution in your hands as possible!

National Crime Victims' Rights Week is April 7-13 and raises awareness about crime victims’ rights and recognizes the difficult process that victims face in our country, state and local community. In addition to shining purple lights in honor of victims, Brown County will be placing additional emphasis on restitution victims are rightfully owed.

In conjunction with the National Crime Victims Rights week, Judge William Atkinson and Clerk of Courts John Vander Leest encourage all victims of crime in Brown County owed restitution to update their mailing address with the Clerk of Courts office if they have moved from their original mailing address.

Clerk of Courts John Vander Leest said, “There will be 20,000 cases moving to the State Debt Collection agency over the next six months, with a good portion of these cases having restitution due. In the last few months the Clerk of Courts office has obtained over $97,000 for victims through restitution – sometimes in decades old cases in which many victims thought collection was unattainable.” He added, “I would like to get restitution in the pockets of as many victims as possible. This is done by having updated mailing addresses so that restitution checks reach the victims.” Judge Atkinson added, “victims’ updated mailing addresses should be provided to the Clerk of Courts office in writing and will remain confidential.”

“On behalf of all Brown County Judges and Clerk of Courts office we would like to recognize the difficulty that victims of crime face, and would like to thank them for their help in seeking justice and restitution. Crime victims must not be forgotten, and we care about victims getting restitution in Brown County.” said Presiding Judge William Atkinson.

Questions from victims or their family members on updating their mailing address -- or other questions about seeking restitution should be directed to John Vander Leest, Brown County Clerk of Court at 920-448-4179 or email [email protected]

We are planning to turn on voluntary e-filing for CV and FA sometime in May 2017.

New phone scam in Green Bay

Someone has been calling or texting and claiming to be a captain with the Green Bay Police Department.

According to the actual Green Bay Police Department, the scammer is telling people who answer their phones that they are under investigation by the police and must pay a sum of bail money to avoid being arrested.

A similar scam has been spreading across the country for several years and has recently been used in northeastern Wisconsin.

Police remind people never to give out personal or financial information over the phone. No financial institution or law enforcement agency would solicit such information over the phone, nor would police anywhere in the state accept prepay cards to satisfy bail or warrants. Those kinds of transactions can only be made in person, with a photo identification, at your local law enforcement agency.

Still worried the police call could be legitimate? Call them at (920) 448-3208.

If you are a victim of crime in Brown County and restitution has been ordered by the Judge, please make sure your address is updated if you change residences. We want to make sure restitution is given to you if the Clerk of Courts office receives restitution from the defendant.
Amanda Bruckner received a check of over $13,000 in restitution in Fall of 2016. Please contact John A. Vander Leest at 920-448-4179 with any questions on how to update your address as a victim.
