House Passes Crime Victims Legislation

Jun 17, 2022

Legislation aiming to better protect crime victims, give them a stronger voice in the criminal justice process, and make sure their informed about their rights was passed by the House this week. The proposal makes a number of changes, including adding certain crimes enacted after the passage of the Crime Victim’s Rights Act to ensure victims of those crimes are afforded the rights they are due. Additional changes include:

    • Allows victims to deliver their victim-impact statements using remote technology
    • Ensures a victim’s image can be protected from disclosure when the court proceedings are conducted through internet streaming, or other online platforms
    • Ensures survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault are connected with confidential support services

The bills will be sent to the Senate for consideration.
