Franklin County Settles Another Four Taser Complaints
Franklin County Commissioners have agreed to settle the legal cases of four more former jail inmates shocked with stun guns.
The four settlements approved Wednesday totaled $61,500. They were on top of another four that commissioners agreed to settle in the past year.
The settlements were tied to a federal class-action lawsuit that accuses deputies of using excessive force.
The Ohio Legal Rights Service, a state agency that claimed deputies were violating the constitutional rights of prisoners, filed the suit in 2010.
The county admits no wrongdoing in each settlement. Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said the payouts are more “cost-effective” than a trial.
