A cash settlement is being made to a group of University of Maryland students injured by police in an off campus riot.
Prince George's County has agreed to pay nearly $4 million to 10 people who were falsely arrested or injured by police during that post-game celebration at the University of Maryland.
A lawyers for the plaintiffs, says $2 million of the settlement is going to John McKenna, who was beaten by police as students celebrated the Terps basketball win over Duke back in March 2010. Another $1.6 million will be divided by the remaining nine students.
Late last week one of the officers, Reginald Baker, was acquitted of the assault while another officer, James Harrison, was convicted of second-degree assault. The attorneys claim the settlements were made before the lawsuit was filed.
