Read this letter and tell me how insane this response is to this story. Sheila S. Polk, Yavapai County Attorney, sees no sexual motive in the actions of Bennett and Wheeler and blames the media for the attention it's receiving.
If you review the police reports, you will find a terrible situation that can be summed up as follows: Eighteen junior high age kids went to a week-long camp in Prescott.
