Myth: This will prevent the public from having information it deserves to know.

Fact: Protecting victim privacy is already in Wisconsin’s Constitution, and this would continue that important right. Marsy’s Law for Wisconsin would enable victims to maintain their privacy and personal safety, but with proper review, law enforcement can protect victims’ rights while providing public information. Not only is this already recognized in Wisconsin law, but many news outlets acknowledge the importance of this balance in their own decision-making – the Associated Press, for example, does not publish the name of sexual assault victims.
