Claim of possible civil settlement in Carrier case unclear

During testimony today in the retrial of former Colorado Springs police officer accused of sexually assaulting children, Joshua Carrier's attorney questioned prosecution witnesses about a possible civil settlement of more than $9 million with families of those children involved.

News 5 has called several sources close to the case, and none have confirmed such a settlement is reached.

Our news partners at the Gazette report that at least 15 families have sent notices of claim in the wake of his arrest.

Carrier is accused of molesting 22 boys while serving as a coach and resource officer at Mann Middle School. He is also facing child pornography charges.
During his first trial earlier this year, the jury deadlocked on 150 counts, convicting Carrier of some and acquitted him of other charges.
