While that's true, the example sentence doesn't really work. See fefe's answer for how to fix it.

comment What are the rules for the plural suffix ~ら
@sawa I see what you're saying, but what I don't understand is why it's used in the newspaper, which as far as I know, doesn't use informal phrases. I re-read the first source...I misunderstood what it was trying to say, that ら can be used for かれ, but it's not exclusive to it.

comment How to understand the contractionしていて、/-てて
Can I ask where you found that sentence? I wonder if a small つ was omitted. "されてって" I'm not sure if that makes any more sense or not...
