I read Eric Heyl's column on Jane Orie, “Heyl: Plain, Jane? You're not the victim”. She claims she is a victim. Well, guess what? She is/was a victim!
Whoever really knows Jane, her sisters and her entire family, as I do, knows she has been innocent yet framed all along. No sense rehashing old news; what's done is done and cannot be changed. By the grace of God, all she can do is move forward. I have known Jane and her entire family almost all my life and I, for one, will always stand behind her, believe in her innocence and continue to support her and her family.
She has tried or is trying to move on with her life. Those who don't truly know her will continue to judge; those who do will support her forever. I plan on standing by the side of my friend and her family and letting God be the judge, and he will judge when it's time.
I found Mr. Heyl's column offensive, yet it is his opinion of the facts as he knows them and it is his job. I plan on standing by my friend, for that is how you know a true friend — one who stands by you and weathers the storm with you until the rainbow shines at the end.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
