Victims’ Rights Organization Recognizes Boback
3/21/2019
HARRISBURG – Rep. Karen Boback (R-Luzerne/Lackawanna/Wyoming) is a recipient of the Guardian of Victims’ Rights Award from the Marsy’s Law for Pennsylvania organization for her support of equal rights for crime victims through assurance of ensuring constitutional protections.

“Receiving this award is a tremendous honor,” Boback said. “I was surprised to learn Pennsylvania is only one of 15 states that does not provide constitutional protections for crime victims. No crime victim should have less rights than that of the accused. ‘Marcy’s Law’ will rectify this.”

The Guardian of Victims’ Rights Awards are presented to individuals who have served as advocates and ambassadors for crime victims across the state, working to ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.

Marsy’s Law legislation (House Bill 276), which Boback co-sponsors, was recently passed by the House Judiciary Committee and sent to the full House of Representatives for consideration. For the state constitution to be amended, legislation must pass in two consecutive legislative sessions before being added to the ballot for voter approval.

During the 2017-18 legislative session, Marsy’s Law passed unanimously in the House and Senate.
