Joe Arpaio's Victim Deborah Braillard: Family Agrees to $3.2 Million Settlement, ABC15 Reports

ABC 15 and star reporter Dave Biscobing have the scoop again on the civil trial in Pinal County regarding the 2005 wrongful death of diabetic mom Deborah Braillard, who was denied medical treatment while in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's gulags and later died because of that lack of treatment.

Earlier this month, Biscobing broke the news that the trial had been halted and a seven-figure settlement agreed to by Braillard's family and Maricopa County. Yesterday, Biscobing revealed the settlement amount, $3.25 million, which will be voted on today at a Maricopa County Board of Supervisors meeting.
