~ 2011 Victim Service Awards Ceremony


Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez recently honored individuals who have made
significant contributions to aid victims of crime at an awards ceremony held in
recognition of National Crime Victims Rights Week.


Arnetta Williams was recognized for her relentless efforts that led to the successful prosecution of a woman who stole more than $300,000 from her 85 year-old cousin by using a fraudulent power of attorney.  Williams rescued her cousin, who was suffering from dementia and poor health, from a squalid home after the defendant refused to let anyone see her.
