The Child of Late NC Inmate Will Receive $1.8M Settlement

Cherokee County’s insurer will pay $1.8 million in a settlement with the 4-year-old daughter of a jail inmate who died in Cherokee County three years ago, pending a federal judge’s approval.

The parties agreed to the settlement in September and filed details about the amounts in federal court last week.

Sheriff’s officers reported finding Joshua Shane Long, 31, near the North Carolina-Tennessee border, shirtless and screaming, following calls to 911 about a man acting erratically. Just before his arrest, officers thought they saw Long swallow something from a breath mint tin, according to several statements to the news media by Cherokee County Sheriff Derrick Palmer.
