NEWSPAPER EDITOR SUES READERS FOR DEFAMATION

On February 11, 2012, the Ionia Sentinel-Standard – a smaller print publication that serves the people of Ionia County – released a story of a drug bust that occurred at a local farmhouse.

The story states authorities found methamphetamine and other drug related objects, while making four arrests and removing three children from the scene.

A picture, taken two years prior to the drug bust at the same farmhouse, was placed on the paper’s website. Kristy Cuttle, who was arrested in the drug bust and has since been placed on probation, was shown with four others at a fundraiser for then gubernatorial candidate Rick Synder and a handful of additional Republican candidates.
