Lee County District Attorney, Jessica Ventiere, believes that our office should be open, honest, and transparent. Additionally, she is committed to fulfilling her legal obligation to protect individual privacy, public safety, the integrity of the case, and the public interest by preventing disclosure of nonpublic information. Therefore, this office has established a procedure to best comply with open records requests.
Once our office receives a request for records, we conduct a preliminary review and search for the documents requested. After the documents are identified, personnel from our office will review the content of those records to determine if it is lawful to disclose. Our office will then send you a letter informing you what, if any, costs are associated with your request. Once payment is made, if necessary, our office will retrieve, copy and redact the requested records and mail them to you.
