Riverside, CA, April 29, 2009: Late Tuesday afternoon, a Riverside Superior Court jury found that Sheriff Deputies employed by the County of Riverside used excessive force against a Moreno Valley family resulting in death. After a two week trial and several days of deliberations, a jury of 4 women and 8 men rendered a gross verdict in favor of the decedent’s two young children and family totaling $5.5M. “This was a tragic, unnecessary and completely avoidable death. It should have never happened” according to Mitch Jackson of Jackson & Wilson, Inc., the Lewis family trial attorney. “This family reached out and called for help.
