(Columbus, OH) There's a statewide effort underway to collect signatures for a crime victim’s bill of rights. The proposed constitutional amendment is called Marsy’s Law, which gives additional protections to crime victims and their families. 

Under the proposed law, crime victims would be kept in the loop at every step of the legal process. Organizers say the idea is to get a constitutional amendment on the fall ballot so lawmakers can’t change it. 

300,000 signatures are needed by July to make the November ballot in Ohio.
