CONCORD — After enduring years of sexual and physical abuse as a child, a New Hampshire woman moved out of state and far away from those traumatic events. But then she heard her perpetrator was trying to get off a sex offender list so he could get free housing.
The state hadn’t told her about that, and she said she began to feel victimized again. The experience prompted her to join a campaign Tuesday to bolster the rights of crime victims by amending New Hampshire’s constitution. The Associated Press does not usually identify alleged victims of sex crimes.
The woman joined Gov. Chris Sununu, lawmakers and police officers in supporting a push to get a constitutional amendment known as Marsy’s Law on the November ballot.
