Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $4.11m in compensatory damages to the family of a Sandy Hook school shooting victim.

Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose six-year-old son Jesse was among the 20 students and six adults killed shooting, sued the right-wing conspirary theorist and his media company after he claimed that the massacre was a “false flag” operation and that the victims did not exist.
