Police To Pay Settlement

Sponsored by:

The city of Sacramento will pay $800,000 to the family of a man killed by police who say they thought the man’s cell phone was a gun.

It also sparked investigations that led to police department policy changes.

Sacramento attorneys said the city settled to avoid even higher payments should the city lose a jury trial.
