Since February 5th 2018, Marsy’s Law has been in effect, providing Ohio’s crime victims new constitutional rights. Marsy’s Law requires criminal justice system officials to notify crime victims of their rights. Marsy’s Law grants Ohio’s crime victims specific rights in the criminal justice process. Many of these rights already exist in Ohio statutes and evidence rules. Along with the Attorney General’s Crime Victims’ Rights pamphlet, the Victims’ Rights Toolkit is a great online resource.
In the Toolkit, you'll find nearly everything victims need to know about their rights from the time of the first report through investigation, prosecution, incarceration, and post-release control. The Toolkit provides victims with customized information and tools to protect and enforce their rights, such as:
Victims' rights laws (in layman's terms with links to the O.R.C.) that apply to them
Form letters to help victims exercise certain rights
