Sound Off: Naming suspects
I’ve recently seen the Journal-World’s new jail log listing everyone arrested in the county. I thought the Journal-World didn’t name people until they’ve been charged?
Our policy changed in December, and we now name arrested suspects before they’ve been charged because their arrests are part of the public record. We still generally do not name suspects in sex offenses unless they’re convicted. To view our new jail booking log, visit http://bit.ly/TSAEke
