In an excessive use of force case dating back more than five years at the Oklahoma County jail, county commissioners agreed to pay $3 million to a former inmate who claimed guards left him paralyzed.

The settlement with Torrance Gene Jackson, 48, was entered earlier this month in Oklahoma City federal court.

Named in the lawsuit were three guards who worked under former Sheriff P.D. Taylor.

Attorneys for Jackson claim in the lawsuit that around 12:36 a.m. on Aug. 13, 2017, Oklahoma City police stopped Jackson for allegedly speeding.
