Washington DOC Agrees to Pay $2,300 to Man Kept Beyond Release Date

On January 25, 2008, the Washington Department of Corrections (DOC) agreed to pay $2,300 to a man who was detained beyond his release date.

Cecil Dudgeon was supposed to be released on May 13, 2005; however, he was kept 50 days longer.

Dudgeon filed a tort claim seeking $88,500 for unlawful imprisonment. The DOC settled the claim without the need for suit.
