Oklahoma County to pay $275,000 to former inmate

Dionne McKinney, who was beaten up by detention officers at the Oklahoma County jail, will receive a lump-sum payment

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma County has agreed to pay $275,000 to a former inmate who was beaten up by jailers while being booked on a complaint of driving under the influence in 2003.

Attorneys representing the county and Sheriff John Whetsel agreed in December to pay the money to Dionne A. McKinney. In exchange, she agreed to stop pursuing punitive damages for the incident.

The settlement amount was officially filed at the court clerk's office on Tuesday.
