Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones owes Sandy Hook parents $4.1m, jury determines

A jury has ordered conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to pay $4.1m (£3.3m) in damages to the parents of a six-year-old boy who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose son Jesse Lewis was among the 20 students and six teachers killed in the attack in Connecticut, successfully sued Jones and his media company Free Speech Systems for defamation in October 2021.
