Settlement in Teen Informant Case
The mother of a slain teen, used by the police as a police informant will receive a $ 1 million settlement. Chad MacDonald, 17, was beaten and killed by drug dealers in 1998 after working as a police informer in Orange County.
"City officials in Brea agreed on Monday to the settlement, the largest by a police department in Orange County history, about a month after a state appeals court reinstated a lawsuit by the family. The killing led to a law limiting the use of teenage informers."
