          No one has any obligation to release anything. Freedom of the press means no one can stop the press from printing something; it doesn't mean the government is obligated to provide them information to print.

            You need someone well versed in Iowa law and procedure.

            A lawyer perhaps.

              In California, sex crime victims are allowed to keep their names confidential. We put them down as John or Jane Doe and fill out a confidentiality form with their info. This should keep their names out of the hands of people that don't need to know. I hope it's like that in every other state.

                bully, I don't believe they poster is talking about the victim. It’s about the alleged officer (officer committing the crime). I have a serious question about what the motivation is behind this thread. Hopefully I am wrong.

                  I know an officer that has somebody that alleged he touched her. The complaintant filled out a statement and a complaint and affidavit. DCI was called because the Co att represents the officer when he writes state charges. Nothing was filed with the clerk of court. papers were handed in to the Co att. The DCI released the officers name to the media. No charges have been filed as of yet and that was over a month ago.
