Crime Victims Amendment Signatures Submitted

(Columbus, OH) Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment giving crime victims and their families the same rights as the accused  could make the fall ballot.

Organizers of the so-called "Marsy's Law" submitted more than 560,000 signatures to the state's top elections official Thursday. Just over 300,000 valid signatures are required to put the statewide amendment on the November ballot. 

The proposal would require that victims and their families be notified of all court proceedings and allowed to tell their accounts of the crime-- and give crime victims input on plea deals and the right of restitution.
