LAWTON – Marsy’s Law for Oklahoma, crime victims’ rights legislation appearing on the November 2018 ballot as State Question 794, will finalize a two-day statewide campaign announcement beginning on Wednesday, September 13, 2017, with a morning press conference at the Hilton Garden Inn in Lawton on Thursday, September 14.
