The family of murdered teen Stephanie Crowe will receive a $7.2 million settlement from a case against the cities of Oceanside and Escondido.

The federal civil rights case involved the confessions gained from Escondido police and an Oceanside officer from Stephanie’s brother Michael and his friend, Joshua Treadway. The courts later stated that the officers coerced the statements from the two.

Michael sued the city of Escondido and Oceanside. The trial was set to begin next week, but on Friday, the Crowe family reached a settlement offer, according to our media partner, the North County Times.
