The Importance of Marsy's Law in Ohio

Sherri Bevan Walsh was elected Summit County Prosecutor in 2000 and has been recognized on both the state and national levels for her outstanding leadership. She was honored as Public Official of the Year by the National Association of Social Workers for her commitment to crime victims, named Prosecutor of the Year by the Ohio Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association for her aggressive prosecution of criminals, and was named 2019 Victim Right’s Champion by Marsy’s Law for Ohio. Prosecutor Walsh has been recognized with more than 55 awards, including the 2016 Model of Justice by the Ohio Crime Victim Justice Center. Prosecutor Walsh’s goal is to aggressively prosecute criminals and ensure that victims receive support and assistance throughout the criminal justice proceedings. Throughout her 30 year career as an attorney in Summit County, Ms. Walsh has fought for the rights of victims and their families. As Summit County Prosecutor, Ms. Walsh started the office’s first full-time Victim Services Division. In 2013, Prosecutor Walsh was the first Prosecutor in Ohio to have a facility dog program to assist crime victims, especially children. Avery, the Prosecutor’s Office Facility Dog, has comforted over 230 victims and assisted nearly 40 victims as they testified in court. Here she discusses the importance of having Marsy's Law in Ohio.
