The Watertown Daily Times published a story on Aug. 14, in the North Country briefy section, about an individual who was charged by the Jefferson County sheriffs deputies at 8:09 p.m. Aug. 12 on County Route 8 in the town of Lyme with unlawfully fleeing a police officer, endangering the welfare of a child, reckless driving and speeding. The individual was accused of driving 116 mph in a 55 mph zone on Route 12E, passing two vehicles with another approaching in the opposite direction while his 3-year-old son was a passenger.
One of the local blogs in Cape Vincent that had just settled a defamation of character lawsuit with residents of Cape Vincent for comments posted about them on her blog was quick to jump on this story and allowed comments to be posted on her blog insinuating that I was that individual, when in fact, I was not.
My first name is spelled Cory, not Corey. Our last names are the same, but we do not share the same middle name. Also, I do not reside on County Route 6, but on NYS Route 12E and I am several years older. Most importantly, I do not have a 3-year-old son.
The individual should exercise extreme caution in these matters when considering the legal issues she was recently confronted with as a result of these same types of comments that she allowed so-called anonymous commenters to post on her blog in the past.
I expect no less than an apology from this blog owner for having allowed comments about me on her blog that were in fact false and without merit.
