The bills are meant strengthen and reform Pennsylvania’s domestic violence laws, offer greater protections to victims of domestic violence and their children, and hold abusers accountable.

A seventh bill would establish a crime victims’ Bill of Rights in the Pennsylvania Constitution to protect and expand the rights of victims of violent crime.

“These bills are intended to address a number of serious and dangerous issues that face domestic violence victims.

“While many states, including Pennsylvania, have laws designed to enumerate the ways in which a victim can interact with the judicial system, there are no provisions in those statutes to ensure compliance,” according to a memo attached to the bill by sponsoring state Sen. Guy Reschenthaler, R-37th.

“Pennsylvania is one of 15 states whose constitution is silent on victims’ rights with the aims of the national Marsy’s Law project that states’ constitutions should balance the rights of perpetrators with the rights of victims,the constitutional amendment requires that, for the criminal and juvenile justice systems, the enumerated rights of victims are to be protected no less vigorously than the rights afforded the accused..

Tierne’s Law, Bill 449, which is heading to Gov. Wolf’s desk, allows district judges to use a risk assessment tool to determine whether a defendant poses a danger to a victim when determining bail.

Butler County District Attorney Richard Goldinger quoted the following to the Butler Eagle called the bill package progress toward allowing victims more say in the criminal prosecution procedure.

“These bills allow additional input and interaction with my office and understanding the criminal justice system, and for my office understanding the way they (victims) feel about the potential outcome of the case,” he said. “This gives them (victims) more interaction with the entire process rather than relying on getting the word third hand.”

VOICe in Butler is said to be ecstatic about this bill, Karen Berg will now be able to take her piss poor salvation army dressed self into court, lie out of her teeth more and get better results. Karen is pleased with her work screwing men over because she is such a shitty attorney she has to work for VOICe

This bill is a potential disaster for those falsely accused, you have no rights or defense when a PFA is filed, you will now be stripped of everything even if falsely accused. Anyone accused of a PFA will have your life turned upside down, you will lose everything and look like a monster, this bill now makes it easier even if a lie to take your home, children, phone..basically anything you have worked for in life..even if the pfa was a flat out lie.
