Voter Guide on 2018 Florida Amendment Six: Marsy’s Law and the rights of crime victims

Ahead of the general election, former U.S. Senate candidate Alex Snitker broke down the Florida amendments on the 2018 ballot for Florida Daily. Snitker then spoke with Dispatch Radio about the amendments.

UPDATE: All of the Florida Amendments passed except for Amendment One – more HERE

Check out the full audio below.

Here’s his remarks on Amendment Six:

Amendment 6 (Rights of Crime Victims; Judges)-NO

Placed on the ballot by the Constitution Revision Commission.

Amendment 6 from the Constitution Revision Commission bundles three issues into one amendment. One issue in Amendment 6 would provide enumerated rights to crime victims and their families, such as the right to have input in the prosecution’s case, the right to be notified of plea deals and the right to speak in court. While I believe in victim’s rights, this would impact rights already codified in Florida statute and required by the Florida Constitution. The victim’s rights portion of Amendment 6 goes into great detail, leaving the possibility of future fixes thanks to unintended consequences would be very difficult to change in the Florida Constitution.
