NBC Miami apologized for and retracted its claims that financial manager Toni Chiricosta was “involved with” a $300,000 theft.
In fact, Chiricosta reportedly “assisted” in finding out about and “reporting the theft.”
The story was about sports agent Rodney Fernandez, who reportedly stole $300,000 from Los Angeles Angels player Kendry Morales. Morales was Fernandez’s client. Fernandez “was jailed on grand theft charges” in March.
