NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — In a story Nov. 20 about a North Platte man pleading no contest to charges stemming from a boating accident, The Associated Press, relying on a report in the North Platte Telegraph, reported erroneously that both of the injured girls were the man’s granddaughters. The newspaper later said only one of the girls was his granddaughter, the other was not.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Man pleads no contest to charges in boating accident

A man accused of causing a boating accident that severely injured his granddaughter at western Nebraska’s Lake Maloney has pleaded no contest to drunken boating and negligent child abuse.

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — A man accused of causing a boating accident that severely injured his granddaughter at western Nebraska’s Lake Maloney has pleaded no contest to drunken boating and negligent child abuse.

The North Platte Telegraph reports that 53-year-old Doug Haney, of North Platte, changed his plea Monday as part of a deal with prosecutors.

He was sentenced to two years of probation, and he will spend two days in jail on his victims’ birthdays.

Prosecutors say Haney was pulling his 9-year-old granddaughter and another girl on a tube when the boat turned sharply and the girls were thrown on the rocky shoreline. The other girl suffered minor injuries.

Since the June 12 incident, Haney has completed alcohol rehabilitation, but he lost his job and remains unemployed.
