A settlement has recently been reached in a lawsuit brought by the family of a disabled 20 year old man and Kings County. The original lawsuit brought by the family accused Kings County and some of its officers of negligence in not supervising the man while he was being kept at a Kings County boot camp for minor offenders. The man, who was 17 at the time he hung himself while at the facility, was sentenced there after he took the family car for a joy ride and was involved in a hit and run accident. The family warned the facility at the time the youth was incarcerated that he had been suffering mentally and to keep an eye on him. However, the teenager managed to hang himself and now suffers from permanent brain injuries. The settlement for $4 million was recently reached between the parties.
