February 7, 2011, by Michael A. DeMayo

The city of Charlotte has settled the North Carolina personal injury case file by a 17-year-old woman who was sexually assaulted by former CMPD police officer Marcus Jackson. The ex-cop pleaded guilty last month to assaulting six women and he is now behind bars.

To date, Charlotte has spent over $617,000 to settle fur claims involving Jackson. $587,000 has gone to the victims.

In this latest Charlotte, North Carolina injury case, the teenager accused Jackson of pulling her over during a traffic stop and threatening her with a ticket unless she performed a sex act on him. She was brave enough to report what happened.

To date, the city has paid $151,550 to the victim and her Charlotte, North Carolina injury lawyers. Over the next 20 years, they will pay her the remaining $198,450 in installments.

Charlotte, North Carolina settled the first case over Jackson in October. The victims were a woman and her boyfriend. They claimed that their constitutional rights were violated when, on December 28, 2009, he molested the woman while pretending to search her and then made the man fondle her while observing them. The city consented to pay $12,000 to Abel Moreno. Jackson arrested him after he tried stopping the then-cop from assaulting his girlfriend.

Police Brutality
Sexual abuse by a cop is police brutality. It is an abuse of power and a crime. Unfortunately, many victims are scared to report what happened because it was a cop who assaulted them and they may fear repercussions.
