Prominent Marsy's Law Attorney Teaches at CA District Attorney Victim Witness Training

Marsy's Law Attorney, Todd Spitzer, addresses Victim Witness advocates at California DA's Association training.  Spitzer was the invited keynote luncheon speaker.

 

I was the keynote lunch speaker for the California District Attorney's Association Victim Witness Training at Chapman University School of Law on Monday. Victim Witness specialists from across California attended the CDAA training to lea rn about how to best support crime victims. I lectured on the role of the Attorney Victim Advocate and our new role as lawyers in criminal cases representing crime victims. I am pleased, as the Legal Affairs Director for Marsy's Law for All, to answer any questions Victim Witness coordinators might have.
 
I am encouraging every Victim Witness Coordinator in California to file a formal declaration at the commencement of every criminal proceeding the assertion of the Victim's Marsy's Rights.  I am working with the Orange County Community Services Program (CSP) and its Victim Witness specialists to utilize this important tool.  At the talk on Monday, only one represented County at the conference indicated that its office was presently filing the Marsy's Rights with the Court.
 
Working together, we can make sure Victims' Rights are being enforced!
