Letter from: John T. Steffen
Re: Stoffer, Parents Criticize BYU Following Suspension
I tend to agree that the letter by the BYU
Honor Code office was poorly written because it implies certain conduct on the
part of Julie that probably didn't occur.
However, I agree that Julie
should be suspended for participating in the show itself. MTV is not that
much different from the pornographic pay per vew stations in its content and
Thus, I believe she violated the Honor Code by
participating in that program and should be suspended, but a different
letter should have been written.
Thanks, John T. Steffen (1988 Graduate of B.Y.U.)
