This weekend, Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin held a community outreach event aimed at educating Trempealeau County Residents – particularly those from the Latino community – about their rights under Wisconsin’s recently adopted crime victims’ rights constitutional amendment known as Marsy’s Law.
Held in partnership with the Trempealeau County District Attorney’s office, New Horizons, and Holy Family Parish, the event provided information on the new crime victims’ constitutional amendment and resources available to area residents.
“Since Marsy’s Law went into effect, Trempealeau County has already seen a greater emphasis on victims’ rights and an amplification of victims’ role in the legal process,” said John Sacia, Trempealeau County District Attorney. “As we continue to implement the new amendment, an important component of the process is educating Wisconsin residents about their rights should they become a victim of crime.”
The event featured presentations in both Spanish and English, and Spanish language materials were available for attendees. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO.
