Clarification: Boarding School Abuse story

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — In a story May 9 about possible settlements being negotiated over sexual abuse at St. George's School, The Associated Press reported that Katie Wales Lovkay, who was abused by athletic trainer Al Gibbs, said she wants to see the school own up to what happened and does not want "payoff money." The story should have made clear that Lovkay would consider settling under certain conditions, such as that she is not placed under a gag order and that the name of a dormitory at the school is changed to remove the name of the headmaster to whom she reported her abuse.
