Kenny Richey

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Sun

Complaint:

Kenny Richey complained that the newspaper had published an article which was wholly inaccurate when it claimed that he was "trawling the internet for new lovers" and had "joined a string of adult websites".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant. The wording was as follows:

Your recent article headlined "Sleazy Kenny Richey in sex site secrets" (24 September) claimed that I am member of several adult websites. Having spent 21 hellish years on Death Row, I am new to computers and certainly do not use them to view pornography or date online. Adjusting to life outside of prison is full of challenges my family and I can are working hard to return to normal. Kenny Richey, Minnesota.
