New York City Reaches $980,000 Settlement With Young Detainees Who Were Beaten, Forced Into Solitary Confinement
Four young detainees who were transferred from Rikers and imprisoned in an Albany jail have won their case against the city of New York.
The city of New York valued Browder's life and story at $3.3 million—a number that barely scratches the surface of what the should-be 26-year-old was forced to endure.
Kalief Browder became a victim of the criminal justice system at 16. Nearly four years after his death, his family has reached a settlement.
