State Police Need Press Release Writing Help

Got a good one from Barney. The Springfield Oregon State Police office issued a press release to the media. The release was about Robert Earl Smith being sentenced in Eugene. He was a messed up fella, pleaded guilty to 42 counts including multiple counts of Sodomy First Degree, Sexual Abuse First Degree, Using Child in Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct and Encouraging Child Sexual Abuse in the First Degree.

So they send the press release to media outlets around the state as a MS Word document attachment. The name of the file? "Naughty Grandpa.doc." Brilliant, you idiots. You just lowered the credibility of your organization and potentially opened yourself up to more problems. Learn how to write a press release, will ya?
