Statement from Attorney General Liz Murrill on the conclusion of the Special Session on Crime

"We kept our promise. Together, we put victims and their families first.

The people of Louisiana have a right to be safe. Acts of violence have a lasting impact on victims, their families, and our communities. If you commit a violent crime, you should face the consequences.

I’ve spoken with victims of violent carjackings and the families of victims brutally murdered by criminals who are now on Death Row. We assured them they would see justice done, as the law promised them.

This two-week special session does not mean crime will automatically go away in Louisiana. It’s going to take all of us coming together to change the course of our State.

I’m committed to doing the work.

Union, JUSTICE, Confidence"
