Correction: Chatman Court Ruling A Judgment, Not Conviction

A report in last week’s News-Press that 8th District Democratic congressional candidate Lavern Chapman’s erroneously-reported “conviction in 2001” should have been characterized as a “judgment” in a civil, not a “conviction” in a criminal court, the result of a civil lawsuit. Also, Ms. Chapman has not, as the report erroneously stated, “publicly reported her campaign contributions.” The News-Press regrettably relied on an erroneous report in another publication for its report and apologizes for the errors.
