Taser Death Civil Suit Verdict In
Posted on Oct 03, 2010
A 28 year-old man died in 2007 after a struggle with deputies in an Orange County jail. The struggle apparently began when the inmate, who was serving a 5-day sentence, refused to give deputies his hands. As a result, he was beaten and shot with a taser nine times. The victim's father filed a civil suit against six deputies and the county; the trial lasted three weeks, but the jurors ruled against the father.
