Correction

August 18, 2004

A headline in the Aug. 11 editions of The Sun was imprecise in referring to former Catholic schoolteacher John Joseph Merzbacher as an "accused rapist." Merzbacher was accused -- but not tried -- of more than 100 counts of sexual abuse. He was convicted in 1995 of six counts of rape and sexual abuse.

The Sun regrets the error.
