Oklahoma City approves $25,000 excessive force settlement

The Associated Press - March 26, 2019 2:49 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City Council has approved a $25,000 settlement in an excessive force lawsuit against a former police officer who is serving a 236-year sentence for rape and other sexual offenses.

City Clerk Frances Kersey says the council unanimously voted Tuesday to settle the case brought against Daniel K. Holtzclaw.

The lawsuit was filed by Demetria M. Campbell, who says the ex-police officer pushed her into a brick wall in 2013. City records say she was treated in an emergency room after the incident and incurred $14,400 in medical expenses.

The city does not concede liability in settling Campbell’s case.
