Family of Man Who Died in Police Custody Reaches a $6M Settlement With the City of Stockton, CA

The mother of a man who died while in the custody of Stockton police is calling on law enforcement to prevent similar deaths.

The Stockton City Council recently approved a $6 million settlement with the family of Shayne Sutherland. The family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Stockton Police Department back in October 2021.

Attorneys for the family say Sutherland died back in 2020 while suffering a mental health crisis and being held down by police. In November 2020, the department released bodycam footage of the moments leading up to Sutherland’s death.
