Wrongfully convicted NYC man settles suit for $10M

Jabbar CollinsThe city has reached a $10 million settlement with a Brooklyn man who spent more than 15 years in prison for the murder of a rabbi he did not commit, ending a bitter legal battle that tarnished the legacy of former Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes.

Jabbar Collins' wrongful conviction was one of many in Brooklyn that came to light in recent years, but his case stood out as the shameful result of an allegedly rogue prosecutor who railroaded Collins to solve a high-profile crime that had struck deeply in the Orthodox Jewish community.

The city's top lawyer, Zachary Carter, made the multimillion-dollar offer on Monday, capping weeks of intense negotiations with a civil trial scheduled for Oct. 20 in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Collins, 42, agreed to a $3 million settlement last month from the state to settle a separate lawsuit.
