According to Wink News, the widow of Nicholas Christie will receive $4,000,000 for the wrongful death of her husband. Mr. Christie was pepper-sprayed to death while strapped in a restraint chair in the custody of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. News of the settlement was reported last week, here on Crimcourts. The Huffington Post also did a telling story on it the other day. You are forewarned if you click-through that link, there is a graphic picture of Mr. Christie’s incarceration. While the payments for the settlement aren’t coming directly out of the Sheriff’s Budget, that cost is likely being passed on to the taxpayers of Lee County through insurance premiums and other costs.
