Joseph Nee convicted; is dad part of the story?

The Associated Press thinks so. The Boston Globe doesn't.

A bit of background: Joseph Nee was just convicted of conspiracy to commit murder for plotting a Columbine-style attack at Marshfield High School. Tom Nee, Joseph Nee's father, is the head of the Boston Police Patrolmen's Association.

You could make a reasonable case for either position. Tom Nee is a public figure, but the crime is his son's, not his.

That said, the Globe's current approach is especially interesting in light of this October 2004 article, which posited a strong link between Joseph Nee's legal troubles and his relationship with his father.
