    Restoring Reputational Rights Through a Government Publication of a Declaration of Innocence

    Get PDF
    In a society that has become increasingly interconnected through advancements in technology, the stig matizing consequences of a false criminal accusation or conviction ca n be devastating. Ironically, unlike the technological advancements societ y has experienced, the ability to protect one’s reputation from such harm requires using the same limited remedies that existed decades ago. With few effective remedies available, those who have been falsely accused or convicted of a crime are without adequate ways to restore their reputations. To fill this remedial void, the federal government should create a forum whereby an individual’s innocence might be published as government speech. This approach incorporates the idea of protecting reputation through a declaration of innocence but differs in that this proposal seeks to incorporate the same technologies that have created societal interconnectedness to pronounce such innocence forcefully throughout society. This pronouncement will fill a void in re putational remedies by directly confronting and remedying the stigmatization such accusations and convictions create. This comment advocates the development of a declaration of innocence in the defamation context in order for the declaration to be transferred into the criminal law arena as a remedy for falsely accused or convicted plaintiffs to be decl ared innocent. This comment further endorses the idea of publicizing individual declarations of innocence on a government website, which declarations thereby become government speech. The government’s declaration of innocence publication has the powerful potential to restore reputational rights for accused or convicted of crimes. The tools to enable the development of this remedy are already in existence. This publication could create the necessary procedural foundation on which to emphasize the benefits of a substantive reputation right under the Due Process Clause that might be adopted to protect the reputational rights of the entire citizenry of this countr

    Understanding the "Sexual Plagues": Evidence for Correcting Catalog Records for an Indiana State Government Publication

    Get PDF
    When Indiana‚Äôs State Board of Health began distributing ‚ÄúSocial Hygiene Versus the Sexual Plagues,‚ÄĚ an early twentieth-century sex education pamphlet intended to keep young men from risking sexually transmitted infection, this pamphlet positioned Indiana at the vanguard of a growing public health movement. ‚ÄúSocial Hygiene Versus the Sexual Plagues‚ÄĚ warned against both the ‚Äúrapid invasion of the American home‚ÄĚ by incurable ailments like syphilis and ‚Äúthe direful consequences of sex secrecy." Although these cautions may sound hyperbolic, or even simply strange, to our ears, the matter of providing sex education to unmarried individuals was deeply controversial. It took considerable effort to publish this title, which is still found in a number of Indiana libraries. The hidden story of the creation of this state government publication provides new information about its authorship and publication dates, which are often inaccurate in catalog records for this title
