NEW TV AD HIGHLIGHTS VICTIM PERSPECTIVE -

SHOWING NEED FOR CRIME VICTIMS’ RIGHTS AMENDMENT

 

Raleigh, NC - The victims’ rights amendment campaign, known as Marsy’s Law for NC, released a new TV ad featuring a North Carolina victim sharing his account of a random and violent assault he suffered while at work.  The ad highlights the victim’s experience after the crime occured, saying that he was not kept informed about his case and bravely sharing that he is still worried his attacker will be released from custody without him knowing.

Victims deserve to be informed about their case. And to be heard.

As this year’s campaign season reaches its final weeks, there’s a lot of attention in North Carolina to the six constitutional amendments voters will consider on November 6. Unfortunately, not all of the information being presented to voters is accurate.

Marsy’s Law Will Give NC Crime Victims a Voice

Most people, fortunately, have little to no idea what it means to be victimized in North Carolina. Most don’t know what it means to suffer as a result of a violent and terrifying crime. But for crime victims who suffer well beyond the crime itself, the experience is all too real and horrific.

The Bipartisan Amendment: Victims’ Rights

 

The official start to election season is right around the corner as summer comes to an end. And this year in North Carolina, the talk isn’t about a candidate; it’s not about legislative elections or even county candidates. This year in North Carolina, the coverage is focused on a slate of six constitutional amendments that will be on the November ballot.

Constitutional Level Rights for Victims are Important

 

There has been a lot of attention focused on the slate of six constitutional amendments that North Carolina voters will consider on November 6. Partisan controversy has swirled around the package - but one of the amendments deserves consideration outside of the group. Victims’ rights should not be dragged into the partisan rancor.

Marsy's Law will be on North Carolina's Nov. 6 Ballot!

 

North Carolina's General Assembly passed Marsy's Law - the constitutional amendment guaranteeing equal rights to victims of crime during the last week of the legislative session. The amendment needed to pass 3/5 of both chambers of the General Assembly to be placed on the November ballot for voters to decide. Marsy's Law gained significantly more votes than needed in both chambers - with an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 45-1 in the Senate and 107-9 in the House.
