I was appalled that The Santa Barbara Independent chose to give Charles Owens, a convicted murderer/rapist, a voice in your newspaper. After sitting in his prison cell and fabricating this ridiculous dialogue and fictitiously detailed events, he was able to get “published” by your newspaper. The fact that he could find a lawyer to support his accusations is disgusting enough without finding a public venue for his rant. What was the point? I can see reporting the facts but to actually print his untruths is just very poor journalism.

Get a grip, the Indy was only reporting both sides of the story.

Apparently this author doesn't believe in due process, right to an attorney, defense attorneys, or hearing another side to a story. Just what we need in a jury pool.
