Victims’ Voices


Fiona Wakefield

Survivor Fiona Wakefield: “Marsy's Law is going to protect and serve a lot of people who are in situations similar to mine. You're not going to be left in the dark. You're not going to be thrown to the side or forgotten about.”


Supporter Kurt Picknell

Walworth County Sheriff Kurt Picknell: "We feel very passionate about Marsy's Law and here in Wisconsin, the Badger State Sheriff's Association fully supports this legislation." 


Supporter Andrew Rose

Chief Andrew Rose: “Marsy’s Law restores the balance in the criminal justice system and restores the voice for victims of crime in Wisconsin.”


Christina Traub

Survivor Christina Traub: “The justice system is failing to provide victims with the rights that they’re afforded… I do feel like I’ve been victimized again.”


Maggie Krumpos

Survivor Maggie Krumpos: "He can know where I'm living. He could know where I'm working. And it can happen all over, only this time I might not make it out." 


Supporter Mike Crivello

Retired Milwaukee Police Association President Mike Crivello: "The judicial system has to be fair and balanced, and if there's a constitutional support for a defendant, why shouldn't there be a constitutional support for the victim?"


Supporter Holli Fisher

Golden House Victim Advocate Holli Fisher: "I work with domestic violence victims daily, and I see how confusing it is to navigate the criminal justice system. A lot of times, victims are left in the dark."


Supporter Samantha Thompson

Victim Advocate Samantha Thompson: "The innocent person has no rights. They don't know where to turn to and they don't know how to navigate the judicial system. And I think that Marsy's Law could be the answer."


Supporter Marianne Radley

Reach Counseling Program Director Marianne Radley, “I believe that the stronger victims’ rights we have, we empower more people to come forward when something happens to them”


Supporter Todd Delain

Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain, “Marsy’s Law is needed in the State of Wisconsin because a lot of effort is given to protect the rights of the accused, yet at the same time, our victims do not have the same support"
