Complainant Name:
Ms Jacqueline Sharp

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World


Ms Jacqueline Sharp complained that an article was inaccurate in stating that she was a prostitute and dominatrix.
She provided documentation from an NHS GU Clinic to back up her complaint that she was not a sex worker and a letter from Lothian and Borders Police to show that she does not have a criminal record.


The matter was resolved when the newspaper published the following statement setting out the complainants position:

On 22 April we reported that Ms Jacqueline Sharp, a volunteer worker for the Citizens Advice Bureau, was 'selling kinky sex' on the Internet. After refusing to comment at the time, Ms Sharp now wishes to state that she has never sold sex - or dominatrix services - and that her mistress Sabrina' website was purely for research.

Report: 76
