What is Marsy’s Law?
Marsy’s Law seeks to give crime victims meaningful and enforceable constitutional rights equal to the rights of the accused. Some examples of the types of rights to which we believe all victims are entitled are:
- To be treated with dignity and respect throughout criminal justice proceedings
- To be notified of his, her or their rights as a victim of crime
- To be notified of specific public proceedings throughout the criminal justice process and to be present and heard during those proceedings
