A weekly newspapers editor says he'll go to jail rather than pay the court costs incurred by a drug-treatment center when it forced him to disclose information about sources for stories on the program.

"I just cannot in good faith pay for this," said Robert Lobsinger, editor of the Newkirk Herald Journal. "If they come and get me and take me to jail, I guess that's what will happen. But there's a principle."

On June 9, District Judge Daniel Owens in Oklahoma County ordered Lobsinger to pay $2,150 in attorney fees to the center, Narconon Chilocco.
