“Voters in Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota on Tuesday each approved amendments to their state constitutions adding rights for crime victims. More than 30 other states have already taken this step, and the latest votes continue that important trend,” Cassell wrote.  “The results make clear that protection of crime victims’ rights is extraordinarily popular.”

Earlier this fall, Cassell also authored an op-ed in The Grand Forks Herald about North Dakota’s Marsy’s Law. Read that commentary here.
