“A photograph published in the Toronto Sun Friday incorrectly identified a person who has the same name as a dead drug dealer. The photo showed Shawn James, winner of a Harry Jerome Award in 2005 and a social worker with UrbanPromise Toronto, a Christian-based community initiative working with children, youth and single mothers.
“He is very much alive and the error raised concern among the kids he works with at Thistletown Baptist Church.
“James ‘operates an after-school program for children at Kipling and Finch Aves. and he has no criminal background,’ wrote UrbanPromise executive director Brett McBride.
“The story, however, was about the trial for the accused killer of another man named Shawn ‘Juice’ James, slain in 2007. The Sun apologizes for the error.” — Toronto Sun
