    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . It's an indication to the police, clerks, etc that the victim's address and contact number is confidential and shouldn't be released. Also may indicate that there's more information available on your charges that's not in the complaint. If it's a criminal complaint, you'll be entitled to a public defender.
