Hope you are staying safe and doing well.
I'm a freelance journalist and under the California Public Records Act § 6250 et seq., I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of arrest and incident reports from the Los Angeles Police Department pertaining to subject Unsunny Young Han (DOB: [REDACTED]). My request is in the interest of fact checking and to ensure details are not just simply fabricated.
This information is not being sought for commercial purposes. If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $25. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of the subject, who was put under a spotlight in the 1990s from a conspiracy to murder charge to which her twin sister was ultimately convicted of. I've been commissioned by Truly*Adventurous, a digital magazine, to retell the story since it was last reported in 1997; this includes new interviews, both with the subject and other affected individuals.
The California Public Records Act requires a response within ten business days. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records. If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law. Thank you for considering my request.
