South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley has appointed a panel to oversee the creation of a new program that will provide information to crime victims.
The crime victim program was part of a sweeping measure passed by the South Dakota Legislature to reform the criminal justice system by treating more nonviolent offenders through intensive probation, parole and other programs outside prison walls.
The Statewide Automated Victim Information and Notification program will provide victims of crime with information about those who committed crimes against them. That information may include important dates of court proceedings, as well as changes in bond conditions or release from custody.
Law enforcement officers, court and prison officials, and victim's advocates will serve on the advisory commission to set up the notification system.
