The defense attorney or defendant has a right to ask to interview you and discuss the case. However, you do not have to talk to them if you choose not to do so. If you would feel more comfortable discussing the matter in the presence of the State's Attorney or Assistant handling the case, call the Victim/Witness Assistant before agreeing to an interview.
A representative of this office will be happy to attend with you at your request. You should not sign anything without speaking first with the prosecutor handling your case.
