Clarification

In a story published in the July 18, 2012, edition of the Portsmouth Daily Times, the following quote appeared:


“Right now, as I understand it, there are no charges filed,” Faulkner said. “My conversation with the County Prosecutor is that the matter was being looked into by the Sheriff’s Department. (Detective) Jodi Conkel and (Captain) Dave Hall both gave preliminary indications that they thought it was a justifiable shoot.”


The Portsmouth Daily Times received this response by email from Scioto County Sheriff Capt. David S. Hall.


“The Sheriff’s Office has not spoken to attorney Rick Faulkner about this case nor have we indicated that this case was a justifiable shoot. All evidence in this case will be presented to the Scioto County Grand Jury with the facts.”


The Portsmouth Daily Times strives for accuracy, and appreciates any clarifications that make a story more accurate.
