(Toledo News Now) -
There is a high profile trial
unfolding in our area, and it is generating additional exposure even though the
proceedings have not yet begun.
In this case, Michael Fay, a
juvenile, has been charged with two counts of aggravated murder in the deaths
of Blake and Blaine Romes. The defense has filed a motion to exclude the
media from at least some of the proceedings.
This is a slippery slope.
An attorney representing WTOL 11, Fox Toledo, WNWO, The Associated Press of
Ohio, The Findlay Courier, The Lima News, The Putnam Sentinel, and possibly
other media outlets will file an objection on First Amendment grounds.
Ohio law gives the judge discretion
to ensure justice, but we believe the Constitution and legal precedent support
our belief that conducting these proceedings behind closed doors does not
support justice and violates your right to know.
We have an essential
obligation to inform the public about the things that matter in their
communities. We will object to the motion to exclude the media because it
is the correct and necessary legal step to take.
