Updated:PITTSBURGH (AP) (AP)ong> - Pittsburgh's federal prosecutor said he won't reopen a criminal civil rights investigation into three white city police officers who were successfully sued by a young black man for wrongful arrest.
U.S. Attorney David Hickton said he respects the verdict returned Monday in a civil lawsuit filed by Jordan Miles, who was an 18-year-old performing arts high school student with no criminal record when he claimed police wrongfully beat and arrested him in January 2010.
The FBI investigated Miles claims and declined to file criminal charges against the officers. Hickton said nothing about Monday's verdict in the civil trial will change his mind about reopening the criminal investigation.
The jury rejected Miles' claim that police used excessive force, but awarded him $119,000 after finding the officers were wrong to arrest him.
