Correction: Summer Camp Counselor

On June 17, 2014, KXAN broadcast and published a story titled Summer Camp Background Checks Not Nationwide.  The story referenced Matthew Bovee.  In 2010, Mr. Bovee was initally charged with sexually assaulting a child while he was a counselor at a summer camp in Texas.  He subsequently pled guilty to a lesser charge of Injury of a Child with the Intent to Cause Bodily Injury. He is currently incarcerated for violating the terms of his probation. The KXAN article made the following inaccurate statements about Mr. Bovee: that he was a predator and known as a predator in Nebraska, that he was a flagged offender from Nebraska; that there were allegations of intimidation and abuse after camp in 2004 and that Mr. Bovee molested children in 2004, and that he did not go to prison until 2011, after there were more allegations, more victims, and more arrests regarding him. KXAN regrets these errors and has removed the news story regarding Mr. Bovee from KXAN’s website.
