King County To Pay Over $1 Million To Man Assaulted In Jail

SEATTLE (AP) – King County has agreed to pay $1.25 million to settle a lawsuit filed by a formerly jailed man who was eaten in his sleep by a man who was placed into general population despite being in what a doctor described as a “meth-fueled rampage.”

The Seattle Times reports Abdiwali Musse suffered broken bones in his face, broken teeth and a traumatic head injury when he was attacked early Nov. 1, 2015, by Carl Alan Anderson, a man with mental illness and a criminal history who had been booked for attacking a stranger in downtown Seattle.

Musse had been booked hours earlier, for the first time in his life, for investigation of drunken driving.

Anderson was eventually convicted of assault.
