Going Purple: Local landmarks recognize National Crime Victims' Rights Week

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- You may be seeing a lot of purple in the Las Vegas valley this week. It's for National Crime Victims' Rights week.

Las Vegas City Hall is one of nearly a dozen local landmarks going purple to recognize the rights of crime victims. This year, there is a special emphasis on Marsy's Law which was passed in 2018.

The law ensures crime victims and their families have information about their cases. It's named for Marsy Nicholas who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend in California in the 1980s.

Nevada is working to keep victims safe and by giving them updates during court proceedings and notifications if the defendant is released from prison or jail... Read More

Munson says drivers in these incidents can only help themselves by stepping forward:

“People have to be held accountable for their mistakes, but don't make 'em worse for yourself.”

And even if those folks don't turn themselves in, their own behavior often gives them away:... Read More
