GERALDINE HOUDE filed this request with the Bellingham Police Department of Bellingham, MA.



To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any log entries/case files specific to December 31, 1972 to January 30, 1973 involving an 18 year old male and 3 juveniles involved in the rape of a 15 year old female at a New Year's Eve party. Specifically the case file # and any associated court docket numbers. Also to include any reports of rape in that time period in the town of Bellingham.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
