Family one step closer to $2.5 million settlement
SANGAMON COUNTY -- A multi-million dollar settlement between the county and the family of a clown charged with sex crimes is one step closer to being reached. Paul Carlock of Springfield, died in a hospital in 2007. It happened after he struggled with guards at the jail. A county board committee has approved about $2.5 million settlement offer to the family. The full board still has to approve it.
