California: $5,000 Settlement in Wrongful Imprisonment

California’s County of Sacramento paid $5,000 to settle the wrongful imprisonment claim of Robert B. Weber, who was arrested on February 1, 2004 on suspicion of driving under the influence. At the jail, a computer error indicated “no bond, 30 day immediate confinement.”
Weber was taken to court eleven days later and the error was discovered by court officials who ordered his immediate release. Even then, he was not released for another day. His claim settled on May 19, 2004. See: Sacramento County (CA), Office of Risk Management, Claim No. L0400276.
