jurard st hillaire city settlement

Brooklyn resident Jurard St. Hillaire recently won a $14,000 settlement from his city, after surveillance video proved he was illegally stopped and frisked last June, according to the New York Daily News.

In the video, Officer Leonard Clarke is seen roughly forcing Hillaire against a building in the borough’s Flatbush neighborhood, after the 21-year-old recorded Clarke pulling over a car. After frisking Hillaire, Clarke eventually lets him go.

St. Hillaire later claimed that Clarke slammed his head against the wall repeatedly, but that wasn’t captured on video.

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Clarke has cost the city money: Since 2010, N.Y.C. has been forced to settle five cases, with the officer being charged with false arrest or illegal search. The cases have cost a total of $96,000.

“I think it would be wise for the Police Department to send Clarke for retraining and to start supervising him more closely,” said Richard Cardinale, St. Hillaire’s lawyer. However, the city doesn’t see the settlement as admission of poor conduct.

“We felt that settlement was in the city’s best interest; however, it should not be construed in any way as an admission of wrongdoing by the officer,” said city lawyer Pernell Telfort.
