LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION

City of Tulsa, OK

In 1987, Arvin McGee Jr. was convicted of raping and kidnapping a woman. In 2002, he was exonerated after DNA testing linked another man to the crime. He filed a lawsuit against the city for allegedly violating his constitutional rights. McGee claimed a Tulsa police officer acted with deliberate indifference toward his constitutional rights when using a five-man photo lineup from which the victim identified McGee as her attacker. After spending 14 years in prison for a crime he did not commit, McGee was awarded a $12.25 million settlement. (Jun-03-06) [ HOUSTON CHRONICLE ]
