Complainant Name:
Keith Sheldon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Selby Times


Keith Sheldon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a report of his son's court hearing that contained errors relating to the charges faced.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper acknowledged that it had not published the outcome of the trial and the PCC subsequently negotiated the publication of a follow-up piece - with clarification - in the terms below:

A SELBY man who attacked his wife after she accused him of seeing another woman has received a two-year community supervision order. Town magistrates also ordered Craig Sheldon complete an integrated domestic abuse programme and pay £85 costs. The 40-year-old from Gowthorpe previously admitted assaulting Yvonne Marie Sheldon when she confronted him over social networking claims he had been unfaithful. He slammed the lap-top shut on her hands, breaking the computer screen. He then punched her twice to the arm and once on the leg but not, as previously reported, to the face. Nor was their son sobbing in the garden. We are happy to set the record straight.
