The City of Elkhart settled a case pay out $7.5 million to Keith Cooper.
Cooper was arrested for robbery and sentenced to 40 years in 1996.
Cooper served 8 years until he was released after new evidence came to light including claims of witness manipulation by officers involved, and even the victim requesting a pardon for Cooper.
Governor Holcomb granted that pardon for Cooper, clearing his name of the crime in 2017.
Cooper sued Elkhart and the officers and the 7 and a half million dollar settlement is the largest in Indiana for wrongful conviction.
