We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $1,550,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
In August 2021, the City of Troy agreed to pay $1.55 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the family of Edson Thevenin, who was fatally shot during a DWI stop in April 2016.
Cinthia Thevenin filed a civil rights lawsuit against the Troy Police Department following the death of her 37-year-old husband, Edson Thevenin. The lawsuit alleges that Thevenin was wrongfully killed by Sergeant French during a DWI stop in April 2016. An internal department investigation found that French had forced Thevenin’s car off the road and lied about aspects of the case. Following the death of Sergeant French due to COVID-19 complications, the city ultimately decided to settle the lawsuit.
