STATEMENT: Regarding Media Bias Related to Crime Victims’ Rights

July 16, 2021

Statement By: Paul Hawkes, Marsy’s Law for Florida Counsel

 

“Today I will be participating in a panel discussion regarding Marsy’s Law for Florida taking place at the Florida Press Association annual conference. While I anticipate that I will be the only proponent of Marsy’s Law on the panel and the conversation will be fairly one-sided, I find it critical that we continue to educate every Florida citizen about the crime victims’ rights and protections now available to them thanks to Marsy’s Law for Florida.
