Annotation: This film emphasizes the important role played by the National District Attorneys' Association's (NDAA's) Victim-Witness Assistance Programs by showing the problems encountered by one particular witness.
Abstract: Some witness problems which gave impetus to the assistance programs are discussed by the NDAA president. These problems include loss of time from their jobs by witnesses who may have to return to court five or six times and the difficult experience of meeting defendants against whom they are testifying. The film depicts a witness trying to make her way through the 'justice maze,' which includes strange buildings, puzzled clerks, and attorneys who sometimes treat witnesses as 'pieces of evidence.' The film includes a list of cities that have NDAA Victim-Witness Assistance Programs.
