The James Lee Crummel Case
A convicted child molester and kidnaper is outed in Newport Beach.

Some of the stories I worked on as part of the newspaper's team that covered Orange County's third Megan's law disclosure.

"Loopholes were Crummel's friends" - 15 May 1997

"Plan: Buy condo, kick out molester" - 16 May 1997

"Crummel Facing Eviction Notice"

The Orange County Fair,
Costa Mesa California, July 1997

John Weaver is in pain every waking moment. We found him at the fair rolling through life with bright American flags on his wheelchair. I told his story on 21 July 1997.

"Colorful heads cap the fair's Miranda rites" - 24 July 1997
