Jury says jail beating violated inmate’s rights

DENVER — A Denver jury has awarded $40,000 to a man who said ex-Denver Sheriff’s deputy Stephen Koehler violated his civil rights when he beat him at the jail in 2009.

Jurors saw video of Koehler grabbing Robert Duran’s throat and running him into a cell wall.

The Denver Post reports Koehler was fired in 2010 for a series of alleged assaults on Duran. The dismissal notice said Koehler was careless in performance of his duties, failed to follow rules and lied to supervisors.
