The Wrong Name

So I was browsing reddit this morning, and happened upon a post about Upon searching my own name, I was impressed with the information the search engine came up with. I think every mailing list post I’ve ever made was found.

But I found something very unexpected. An article about someone with the EXACT same name as me who is a real dirt-bag! He was sentenced to 2 years in prison for shaking a baby! I don’t plan on having to search for a job anytime soon, but it worries me that someone could do a search on my name and this article might show up associating me with such a terrible crime!

What also tends to bother me is that the newspaper did not use the middle name of the person. Any advice out there interweb?
