Forgotten Voices Podcast Tells Crime Victims’ Stories In Their Own Words
Scott Mitchell, an analyst for Oklahoma City’s News9, launched a podcast series called Forgotten Voices. According to Scott, the series will highlight important stories of victims of crimes “in their own words”. He added the series purpose is “to bypass the media filter and let victims and victims’ advocates speak directly to Oklahomans. “
We appreciate Scott’s commitment to telling these stories and his candor on the struggle crime victims face. Every day, Oklahomans suffer at the hands of criminals. Then they suffer again while navigating a complex judicial system and court process. They don’t benefit from the same Constitution and legal protections that criminals are provided. Marsy’s Law for Oklahoma SQ 794 would secure permanent, enforceable rights for victims.
Marsy’s Law is proud to be a sponsor of this series because we believe that by highlighting unfiltered and real-world examples; together, we can restore balance and fairness to our criminal justice system.
The series will debut new stories bi-weekly and runs through the summer of 2018. You can listen here.
The first podcast on Forgotten Voices was a Facebook Live event during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week featuring Marsy’s Law for Oklahoma State Director Kim Moyer, staffer Joshua Harris, and crime victim and President of the Oklahoma Homicide Survivors Support Group Lauren Layman.
