Mille Lacs County Agrees to Settlement

(AP) A $45,000 settlement has been reached between Mille Lacs County and the family of a boy who was arrested, shackled, and held over-night by county employees back in 2007, when the boy was eleven years old. At that time, the boy was led from his school in handcuffs and held over-night at a juvenile detention center because he had missed a previous court date to testify as an assault victim. The boy's parents, George and Kirstie Deyhle had sued the county in Federal Court on behalf of their son. The case was settled on February 6th, and has been dismissed. The county was also asked to apologize to the family. Attorneys for both sides have said they are satisfied.
