Complaint:

A man complained about two articles which reported that he had avoided a prison sentence despite having 4,000 indecent images on his computer. The complainant was concerned that the article referred to him as a ‘pervert' who had ‘downloaded a sickening haul of thousands of child sex pictures'. He explained that none of the images had been retained on his computer. He was also concerned that a photographer had continued to take photographs of him and his outside the court despite his having asked that he desist.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the editor agreed to meet with the complainant to discuss his concerns.
