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.
