Complainant Name:
Ms Donna Letremy

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Huddersfield Daily Examiner

Complaint:

Ms Donna Letremy, partner of the late Michael Francois, complained that an article which reported the sentencing of Marcus Rhoden for the attempted murder of a police officer contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction: “In a report on October 14 about the jailing of Marcus Rhoden for the attempted murder of a Huddersfield police officer, we stated that Rhoden had fired shots at a car he claimed was carrying Michael Francois. This was incorrect. It should have said that Rhoden claimed that he thought Michael’s brother was in the car. We are sorry for any distress caused by this error, which was contained in a report supplied by a news agency. The report also stated that a feud between Rhoden and Michael Francois was linked to drugs. We have been asked to point out that although the judge suggested drugs appeared to be part of the feud, no evidence to support this was presented in court”.

Report: 74
