Does the victims’ rights amendment take away from the rights of the accused?

This amendment takes nothing away from the rights of the accused.  In fact, this amendment does not and is not intended to negatively impact the rights of the accused or convicted and will take nothing away from the current Constitutional rights criminal defendants have to access fair trials and due process. Marsy’s Law simply elevates victims to the same level in the Constitution, establishing “co-equal” rights for victims alongside the accused.
