City and State Pay Convicted Jewel Thief

A police-brutality lawsuit is being settled in Springfield.   

Justin Douglas, a convicted jewel thief and firearm trafficker, will be  paid 60-thousand-dollars by the city and state. 

Douglas filed  litigation in federal court three years ago after he was arrested in  2012 and claimed he was pistol-whipped by a group of officers.  

The city  earlier this year was ordered to pay one-and-a-half-million-dollars to  Charles Wilhite after a wrongful imprisonment and police misconduct  complaint was filed.
