Settlement after girl left in Milwaukee tow lot
MILWAUKEE - We want to correct a story that we ran last night in our newscast.
The city of Milwaukee has reached a proposed settlement for a case that happened in 2018.
You may remember that a woman was arrested for OWI on the city's south side.
Before the van was towed, a baby and adult passenger were taken out of the vehicle – but nobody saw the 4-year-old sleeping in the back.
The child was found roughly eight hours later.
As part of the city's $50,000 settlement, $20,000 will go to lawyers.
Last night, we wrongly identified who would receive the remaining $30,000. That money will be put into an annuity for the child involved in this case and will be held there until she turns 18.
