LaPorte County government has reached an out of court settlement with a

former jail inmate.

Today.....the LaPorte County Commissioners approved the settlement of

28 thousand dollars.

Attorney David Jones represented the county in the case filed in 2015.

He says the main issue was the inmate having injuries and later

being released without a hospital visit.....

Jones recommended the settlement because going to court and losing

would mean legal fees higher than the what's contained in the settlement.

The inmate also alleged excessive force but Jones felt the county had

a strong defense against that allegation.
