Columbus and Currituck Counties Announce their Support for Strengthening Victims’ Rights in NC

Two additional county governments voted in favor of stronger victims’ rights in North Carolina on February 5. Eastern North Carolina counties Columbus and Currituck both voted in favor of Marsy’s Law, legislation that will strengthen language in the state constitution giving crime victims an equal level of protections already given to the accused and convicted.

This brings the total number of counties formally endorsing the legislation to ten. An additional 17 towns across North Carolina have also passed resolutions to support Marsy’s Law.

“Marsy’s Law is an advocacy organization statewide dedicated to guaranteeing victims’ rights and providing them a voice. I commend the County for putting up this proclamation.” said Currituck Commissioner At-Large Mike Hall.
