Denver approves large settlement for city attorney in jail abuse case
DENVER -- Denver City Council approved an unusual settlement Monday night for a city attorney. It's the latest settlement in a costly jail abuse case. Inmate Jamal Hunter sued after he was attacked at the Denver Jail while deputies looked the other way. The city paid Hunter more than $3 million and then suspended a city attorney, Stuart Shapiro, who accused of misconduct in the case.
