Marsy’s Law for Florida working as intended

by

Last November, Florida voters added Marsy’s Law into the state constitution to provide crime victims meaningful rights throughout the criminal justice process.

Since the law went into effect in January, much debate has occurred over provisions that protect victims’ privacy and keep their personal information confidential.

Leading crime victims’ rights law experts Meg Garvin and Paul Cassell weighed in on the debate in this Tampa Bay Times opinion piece where they make it clear victims’ names should not be automatically disclosed to the public because that information can be used to identify, locate and harass a victim or their family.
