The State is paying this POS off 'cuz of what other criminals did to him while he was incarcerated?!?
Those folks have absolutely lost their minds.
Something is fishy. You don't do jail time unless your sentence is under a year....for longer terms, you do state prison time. It's also odd the county settled with this inmate rather than trying the case. Did they really think a California jury would give this guy more money?
If he's so brain damaged he has a toddler's mind, why's his medical only $900,000? If he's still in jail, why's he got any unreimbursed medical at all?
Most states (cannot say for sure about California) have an Open Records law. The county does not seem to me to have the legal authority to enter into secret agreements.
It'll be interesting to see what George Costanza says about this.
Yep Apparently his lawyer claimed he should have been put in protective custody because all child molestors are in danger in prison. Our tax dollars at work.
I'd like to see the six year old sue her predator. That would be justice.
I'd also like to see this judge fired.
Well, I suppose it is possible the inmate was temporarily housed at the jail awaiting transfer to state prison. Yes, he should have been segregated and that is likely why the county settled...some departure from normal procedures.
What did the judge do wrong? The guy pled out...I suppose the judge could have rejected the plea agreement, but he cannot force the DA to upcharge or prosecute, chanel.
Mebbe I'll start up a new area of practice, representing inmates who get tagged in jail? I had no idea local governments rolled over this easily. If this had happened in Cleveland, I'd wonder who the lawyer was related to in county government.
He didn't get rewarded for being a child molester, he got a settlement because the Prison System didn't protect him. Yeah, the award may have been too much but he's a prisoner and the Prison System is responsible for his safety.
Yes, I'm glad he was beaten. I wish he'd have been killed.
I hate illegal aliens, they love young children for some reason. Build the wall.
But the Prison system "f'ed up" and he got a settlement. Move on.
Too many questions. Color me nosey; I wanna know what happened.
It I an outrageous settlement and Madeline hit the nail on the head. What was this lawyer's relationship to the county? According to the OP, the negotiations went on behind closed doors. I wonder if anyone will file an appeal. You'd think the Orange County taxpayers would have standing.
CA has gone off the deep, deep end!
Where is the man now? Did he hightail it back to his country of birth? Or was he given automatic citizenship to boot???
