Crime Victims Ask for Constitutional Amendment

Crime victims and their advocates are pushing for passage of a state constitutional amendment that would toughen protection for victims and ensure that they are informed and given the right to speak if the accused perpetrator is up for bail or parole.


Supporters of what is known as “Marsy’s Law” rallied at Southwind Park Sunday.


Illinois currently has a Crime Victims Bill of Rights in its state constitution, but supporters of Marsy’s Law say the current constitutional provisions are unenforceable and need to be tightened.
