PA Legislature passes bills to stop further re-victimization of our survivors and their families.
This victory in Harrisburg will amend the Crime Victims’ Act of 1998 and serves to show that crime victims’ rights will not be ignored.
House Bill 2533 and Senate Bill 508 passed in their respective houses and these bills titled “Re-victimization Relief” clearly spell out the procedure for the crime victim, their local D.A. or the PA Attorney General to file a motion in court to stop continuous re-victimization.
John McNesby and the entire membership of Lodge 5 would like to thank PA State Representative Mike Vereb, 150th District for being the sponsor of the House Bill and we would like to also thank all the Senators and Representatives for their support of the bills in their final form.
The bills will be signed by the Governor next week.
