HAMMOND | The defense and prosecutors have asked the court to seal all correspondence received in conjunction with the child sex case involving disgraced Pastor Jack Schaap.

The parties argue in a motion filed Thursday the content of the letters and emails suggest they were “meant for the Court’s consideration only and not for public consumption.”

The correspondence also contains information, such as home and email addresses, and other personal and confidential information that must be redacted by law from public filings.

Mary Hatton, spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office, declined to comment on the content of the correspondence.
