OAKLAND, Calif. – OAKLAND (BCN) — Alameda County has agreed to pay $5.5 million to an accusedcriminal to settle a federal civil rights lawsuit that he fled after he was beaten by Alameda Countysheriff’s deputies in San Francisco in November 2015, his attorney and a sheriff’s spokesman saidFriday. Stanislav Petrov’s attorney, Michael Haddad, said in a statement, “We said we were going to hold Alameda County and the involved deputies accountable and we did.” Haddad said, “This result should serve as a deterrent to law enforcement officers who would abuse their authority and beat a man who was trying to surrender, as these deputies did.” Haddad said Alameda County will pay $1 million of the settlement and the rest will be paid by the county’s insurance policy. He said the money will be placed in a trust for Petrov and will be paid over his lifetime. Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Ray Kelly said, “The sticker price of the settlement is high but if you don’t do policy right 100 percent of the time you have to pay for it.”
