Update on Coverage of Skoog Case

At this time, The Lawrentian would like to disclose three details related to its ongoing coverage of the charges against Lawrence University student Thomas Skoog.

The update published on Tuesday, March 22, has been edited a second time to exclude all detailed description of the photos used by police to press charges against Skoog.

Further, those responsible for writing, publishing and publicizing that update were members of the outgoing editorial board. The new editorial board will formally assume control at the start of Spring Term, and none of its members should be held accountable for the coverage of this story thus far.

Lastly, as an update on the case itself, Skoog waived his right to a preliminary hearing today, and an arraignment is yet to be scheduled. The Lawrentian will continue covering this story as it develops.
