Kameron Boudin sued the county earlier this year, alleging that Otter Tail County sheriff's deputy Jeremias "J.J." Krupich punched Boudin several times in the face and forehead while Boudin was lying on his back during a December 2018 incident, restrained by Krupich. The suit said Krupich's actions led to a serious brain injury, mental health problems and other significant physical trauma.
"We're not unhappy with the settlement," said Boudin's attorney, Robert Bennett of Minneapolis. "We would've liked to have gotten a little bit more and they would've liked to have paid a little less, which is usually the case when you settle. It's not an insubstantial amount."
The money will be paid by the Minnesota County Intergovernmental Trust, which provides insurance for counties and associated public entities. The county's liability limit was $2 million.
