Baltimore City Police Sgt. Gregory X. Eames and Detectives William Epperson and April Fullwood-Jackson did bad
An elderly couple will receive $500,000 from Baltimore taxpayers to settle a lawsuit alleging false arrest and malicious prosecution by city police investigating allegations that the couple had kidnapped their grandchild.
Aubrey and Lena Knox charged that they were not only subjected to a police search of their house, but intrusive interrogations, threats and false imprisonment. Throughout the couple’s ordeal, their grandchild was living lawfully in Virginia with the child’s father, the Law Department conceded in a settlement memo approved today by the Board of Estimates.
