BOISE and NAMPA, Idaho. Earlier this month, the Chicago Tribune reported that the family of Sandra Bland, an African American woman who died in a Texas jail, will receive a $1.9 million settlement for her wrongful death. The family hopes that the settlement will result in jail and criminal justice reform. The wrongful death settlement agreement includes changes in the ways inmates will be monitored in the Texas jail where Bland was found dead. The family hopes that additional oversight will prevent deaths of inmates in custody. As a result of the settlement, the Texas jail where Bland was held will invest more money in training officers and will hire emergency personnel to be on staff at all times.
