Man wins $750, 000 in damages after prison ignored his 6-day erection
A 50-year-old prisoner has won a $750,000 settlement from
Manhattan Detention Center after officials and doctors
ignored an erection he suffered which lasted around six
Rodney Cotton was taking the anti-psychotic drug,
Risperdal, when the bizarre erection began. When he
complained, prison officials just gave him an ice-pack and
Tylenol to take care of himself. Rather than help his

seventh day but Cotton successfully claimed in court that

anymore.â€ The judge awarded him the huge amount as
compensation for his troubles.
