Exonerated Man Awarded $14.5M in Lawsuit Against Detective

Large amount of money under legal gavel.

A jury has awarded $14.5 million to a wrongfully convicted man, saying a Michigan State Police sergeant violated his constitutional rights as he pursued a perjury case against him.

The seven-person jury on Tuesday decided that Ray McCann Jr. was due $12.5 million in compensatory damages, plus $2 million in punitive damages to send a warning to other police officers that the tactics used against McCann were not acceptable.

“They can’t get away with something like this. They did me wrong, and they know they did,” McCann said. “I’m just glad it’s over.”
