$641,000 Settlement In Beating Death Of Alabama Jail Prisoner

Following the death a man who was allegedly beaten by jailers in a
Montgomery, Alabama, jail, the City settled with the man's estate for $641,000.

The decedent was arrested in June 1997 for fondling a 10-year-old girl and
imprisoned in the city's jail. While there, his estate contended, jailers
beat him with a blunt object, fatally wounding him.

The estate filed suit against the City in July 1997 claiming the jailers
used excessive force against the decedent. See: Loyolla v. City Of
Montgomery, 15th Judicial Circuit Court Of Alabama, Case No. CV 97-1392,
1997 WL 802494.
