Sacramento County Agrees to Pay $1,000 to Settle Claim of False Imprisonment

On December 22, 2005, the County of Sacramento agreed to pay $1,000 to settle a claim by a man who was erroneously held seven days beyond his sentence.

Don Daniel was scheduled to be released from RCCC Correctional Center, but was held an additional seven days because jail staff believed that Daniel had an outstanding probation violation warrant. Daniel had no warrant, but jail staff refused to verify Daniel’s claim that he had never been on probation.

Daniel represented himself in presenting his claim. See: County of Sacramento Liability Claim No. L0501180
