Silenced Voices – A look at rape cases in Gainesville

Tyler Jett worked on this story for nine months, and it shows!

His story gives personal accounts and also touches on the big-picture issues of how “rape is underreported, misrepresented in pop culture, difficult to prosecute and has a severe psychological impact on the victims.” Check out the interview with Tyler, published online to the left of the story, about his reporting and writing process and his thoughts on the problems involved with charging and convicting rapists.

The feature piece was a welcome edition to the student-run newspaper, The Independent Florida Alligator, and Tyler did a fantastic job on a topic that should be talked about more often.
