Conyers Case Settlement Reached

A Culbertson man who alleged wrongful imprisonment and mistreatment while a prisoner in the Roosevelt County Jail in a lawsuit in U.S. District Court recently reached a settlement with Roosevelt County.
Details of the settlement for Kevin Conyers, 36, are not available due to a federal gag order.
Conyers filed the lawsuit against Roosevelt County, the State of Montana, former Sheriff Freedom Crawford, two deputies and a state social worker.
Conyers was arrested in February 2010 and charged with felony sexual assault of a minor child. Bail was set at $100,000.
He was jailed from Feb. 16, 2010, to June 2, 2011.
Roosevelt County attorney Jim Patch later dismissed the charge. He was reported to have said in 2011 that there was no factual basis for the charge and that the alleged offense could not have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
Conyers sought several hundred thousand in damages for nine allegations that included unlawful arrest and confinement, and assertions that he was beaten while in jail.
