Illegally Jailed Minors can Claim part of Lawsuit

About 1,450 people jailed illegally as minors in Tennessee can claim part of a $11 million class-action settlement, but fewer than 200 people have filed eligible claims.

The Daily News Journal reports the Rutherford County Juvenile Detention Center regularly locked up children for misdemeanor charges, including truancy, school fights and disobeying parents.

Tennessee law prohibits pretrial incarceration of children unless they are charged with a violent felony, a weapons offense, or a probation violation.

Under the terms of a June settlement, eligible plaintiffs will receive $4,800 per illegal incarceration and $1,000 per arrest.
