NC Representative Nelson Dollar held a press conference this afternoon to introduce “Marcy’s Law”
This new legislation will seek to amend the state constitution to provide protections to the victims of crimes. These protections are already afforded to those convicted, however this law would give those same protections to victims of a crime. Some rights include informing families and victims of their rights, the right to receive notification or proceedings in a criminal case, and the right to restitution, among others. NC Senator Tamara Barringer also spoke on the “Marsy’s Law”.
