Curry County inmate mistreatment settlement

NM - Curry County officials say the settlement of a lawsuit with a Clovis man for his alleged mistreatment while in a detention center is 450,000 dollars.

The settlement was reached with 22-year-old Orlando Salas. Salas was 15 when he was being held in the juvenile facility under conspiracy charges linked to the killing of a 10-year-old boy in 2005.

Salas alleges he was tied to a chair while other inmates urinated on him from a hole in the ceiling above him.
