Mr. Mapes, a 17-year-old juvenile detainee, had an altercation with a guard, who restrained him by handcuffing him and sitting on his chest. Mapes died of asphyxiation.
His estate sued in state court alleging excessive force and that the Defendants had negligently restrained Mapes and failed to properly supervise employees. Defendants paid Mapes’ estate $185,000 to settle the case before trial. See: Estate of Mapes v. Moore, Unknown State Court, Case No. 95-2294-GTV (June 1995); 1997 WL 802013.
