The widow of R&B singer Sean Levert has won $4 million in a settlement of her lawsuit over his 2008 death in an Ohio jail. The agreement with Cuyahoga County and a jail medical services contractor was reached late Wednesday in Cleveland federal court, reports the Associated Press. It includes no official admission of liability.
Sean Levert, 39, was jailed on March 24, 2008, after being sentenced for owing nearly $90,000 in child support. He died six days later and had been denied his prescribed anti-anxiety medication Xanax while he was detained. The coroner said Xanax withdrawal contributed to Levert’s death.
