OAKLAND, Calif.—The City of Oakland will pay $300,000 to a parolee who said an Oakland police officer planted a gun on him.

Assistant City Attorney Barbara Parker tells the San Francisco Chronicle that the Oakland City Council voted 5-3 in a closed session on Tuesday to pay the amount to Lorenzo Hall as well as his attorneys’ fees.

A federal jury awarded Hall $175,000 after a weeklong trial in San Francisco, last year.

Hall spent nearly two years behind bars before his case was dropped for illegally possessing a weapon after his arrest in 2006 while attending a wake for his aunt in east Oakland.

Police said they acted on an informant’s tip and found a gun in his waistband.

Hall’s attorneys say the gun belonged to another man who hid it in a nearby car.

Hall is also known as Zoe The Roasta, a bay area rapper.
