This afternoon Judge Doug Drummond was the guest speaker at the Jenks Chamber of Commerce. He provided an overview of the criminal justice system along with his observations regarding criminal justice reform. I was particularly impressed by his comments that criminal justice reform should not ignore the impact that crime has on victims, as they are a very necessary part of the conversation.
This fall Oklahomans will have the opportunity to pass Marsy’s Law - which will constitutionally define the rights of all victims in every type of case. I along with District Attorneys across this state support Marsy’s Law, and I encourage you to stand up for victims when the time comes at the ballot box.
