TULSA -- Voters hit the polls in just a few weeks and another State Question you'll see on the ballot is 794, better known as Marsy's Law.

SQ 794 provides crime victims with specific rights, including notice of court proceedings like release, plea, sentencing, or parole of the accused.

A strong advocate for Marsy's Law is Sheri Farmer. Her daughter, Lori Farmer, was one of the three young girls who was raped and murdered at summer camp back in 1977.

"People who are not affected by crime yet, might be one day, and I hope they would become as indignant as those of us who are," said Farmer.

Voters will see it on the ballot during the November 6th elections.
