Marsy’s Law: What you need to know

In 1983, only a week after Marsy Nicholas was murdered in California, her family was confronted by the accused murderer in a grocery store. They didn’t know he had been released on bail. The courts and law enforcement had no obligation to keep the family informed.

The newly enacted Marsy’s Law has changed victims’ rights in a few states, including Florida. This law ensures the consideration of the safety of victims and families and provides a public records exemption for victims’ information.

If you’re ever a victim of a crime, check with local law enforcement about keeping your information confidential.
