Description

In April 2004, an assistant principal, Vincent Brothers, was charged with killing five of his family members. He had a prior record of violence and sexual misconduct. This reporter from the Bakersfield Californian, acting on a tip about Brothers prior record, asked the school board to release his personnel file. This story describes the legal battle for the release of these documents under the California Public Records Act.
