Sacramento County Agrees to Pay $9,500 to Settle False Arrest/Imprisonment Suit

In 2005, the County of Sacramento agreed to pay $9,500 to settle a false arrest/imprisonment suit.

Daniel Genzoli was arrested after his fingerprints allegedly matched up with prints taken from a business that was burglarized. It turned out later, though, that Genzoli’s prints had been mixed up with prints that were taken from his work site where a different crime occurred. Genzoli was declared factually innocent of any involvement in the burglary, and his arrest reward was ordered sealed.

Genzoli fild suit after the County denied his administrative tort claim. The County settled shortly thereafter. Genzoli was represented by Jeff Kravitz of Sacramento, California.
