Crime Beat Article

Security screener at JFK Airport charged with stealing $80,000 from checked bag

I saw this on www.drudgereport.com and thought of our news writing class. Different terminology is used that we have recently learned about like arraignment and conviction.
I think it is written without any libel.

What do you guys think?

I agree. To me it seems as if this article is unbiased and simply presents the information. The author uses the correct terminology (allegedly, charged) to avoid libel.
