Marsy’s Law for North Dakota Chair Kathleen Wrigley Speaks Out On Measure 3

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 21, 2016

Statement from Marsy’s Law for North Dakota Chair Kathleen Wrigley:

“Measure 3 is ultimately about the fundamental rights of crime victims – the right to be notified of criminal proceedings, the right to be heard at certain proceedings like sentencings, the right to restitution and the right to be free from harassment. These are basic rights that we believe people harmed by crime deserve. Ironically, the arguments our opposition makes to these rights are the same arguments used against the women’s right to vote last century. Clearly, the 19th Amendment was the right thing to do, just as Measure 3 is the right thing to do now. When we know better, we must do better. Marsy’s Law does better.”
