E-T Staff Report In the Thursday, Sept. 27, edition of the Empire-Tribune, the wrong photo was published in a front page story about a man charged with indecency with a child.
The man depicted as Alejandro Luna Rodriguez, was actually Alejandro Rodriquez, who is not involved in the case in any way.
To obtain photos of those charged with crimes, the Empire-Tribune files Freedom of Information Act requests with the Erath County Sheriff's Department. In this case, the E-T requested a photo of Alejandro Luna Rodriguez, after the sheriff's office notified us that he had been arrested for indecency with a child. The sheriff's office then inadvertently sent us a photo of a man with a similar name. The correct photo of Alejandro Luna Rodriguez accompanies this correction.
The Empire-Tribune takes every precaution to avoid mistakes and sincerely apologizes to Alejandro Rodriquez and his family for any hurt or embarrassment this has caused.
