School scrambles to retrieve prizes with racy images

TALLAHASSEE, Fla, Oct 19 (Reuters) – School administrators hoping to reward students for their A+ fund-raising efforts at a Florida elementary school unwittingly gave them X-rated gifts, officials said.

School officials at Jay Elementary School in the Panhandle on Wednesday were trying to collect more than 100 bracelets distributed to students involved in a fund-raising drive after pictures of naked women were found hidden beneath the bracelets’ cloth coverings.

This law firm represents the company that is the subject of referenced story, “Florida school scrambles to retrieve prizes with racy images”.

This story incorrectly reports that the images in the bracelets were “x-rated” and of “naked women” and “partially clothed and nude women”, whereas, in fact, the images were of women in bikinis.

Please take immediate action to correct this mistaken story.
