Marsy's Law Approved by Illinois House

The Illinois House overwhelmingly voted 116-2 in favor of Marsy’s Law for Illinois, a constitutional amendment that would provide victims of crime with enforceable legal rights that will protect their safety and ensure they are aware of their attackers’ whereabouts. Currently, crime victims have legal rights under Illinois law, but they are not enforceable.  For example, victims are guaranteed the right to be informed of court proceedings, but some victims never learn about hearings until after the fact.
