There is a challenge to a proposed constitutional amendment that would give crime victims more rights in Wisconsin.
The so-called Marsy’s Law would require courts and judges to include victims when sentencing and dealing with suspects and convicted criminals. But the group, the Wisconsin Justice Initiative, is challenging the proposal. The Justice Initiative says Marsy’s Law would give victims new rights that step on the constitutional rights of the people convicted of crimes.
The Marsy’s Law amendment is supposed to be on the ballot in April.
