STILLWATER, Okla. —
To the editor:
I am writing in response to the Sunday, June 1 article entitled “Stillwater man accused of raping young daughter.”
I was deeply saddened by the irresponsibility of the Stillwater News Press in including the name of this man when his daughter is a minor and her privacy should be protected. I do not know these people, but my heart goes out to this young girl who lives in our community and has had her “dirty laundry” exposed to all of us.
This young girl is only 10 years old! Lives are ruined with this sort of journalism. This writer included extremely graphic details regarding this crime which I did not believe were appropriate for public reading. I would hope an apology would be forthcoming and more discretion exercised in the future.
