Discussions Underway For Settlement In Molestation Case

Lawyers involved in the civil case surrounding the accusations that a former Colorado Springs police officer molested adolescent boys are possibly discussing a settlement.

The possible settlement could be as much as $9.4 million. That's according to Joshua Carrier's lawyer, who made the statement in court Friday. The settlement would be between the families and government agencies, not involving Carrier himself.

Carrier is accused of molesting 22 boys while serving as a volunteer wrestling coach at Mann Middle School. Carrier is being tried a second time.

Earlier this year, a jury convicted Joshua Carrier of 21 counts related to child pornography and acquitted him on 36 counts of inappropriately touching boys. It deadlocked on 150 more counts.

At least 15 families have reportedly sent notices of claim in the wake of Carrier's arrest. The notice is a required step before suing a governmental agency.
