Hutchinson County Witness Rooms

Hutchinson County has some new witness protection rooms in its courthouse.

The new witness rooms are located on the second floor of the County Courthouse in Stinnett.

The purpose of the new witness rooms will hold parents, children, and families who are involved at the district courts for child welfare, protective orders, and criminal matters so they can now have a private, comfortable and protected setting while preparing to provide court testimonies.

The rooms can also be used when they visit with judges, Attorneys, CPS caseworkers, Court Appointed Special Advocates, and representatives of the prosecutors’  offices.

Funding for the project comes from the American Rescue Plan award and is supported by Hutchinson County officials
