Federal Victim Assistance

April 8, 2024

The United States Attorney’s Office (USAO) for the Northern District of New York has asked me to share an update regarding the case involving the alleged federal crime committed by Patrick Dai. The update is available on the USAO website. The Crime Victims’ Rights Act sets forth rights of those who have experienced physical, emotional, psychological, and/or financial harm as a result of a federal crime. If you feel that you have been harmed by this alleged crime, you may be entitled to those rights. Members of the community can find more information about the Crime Victims’ Rights Act and contact information for the USAO Victim Witness Coordinator at this link.
