Balls...looks like TX has a cap on punitive damages vs. government of $250k. I'm not sure if that stacks on normal personal injury general damages or not. So that number might not have gotten any better. Still, it's not really about the money. Sexual assault charges in Texas carry 2-20 years. I wonder how tough the sentence was against the cop doing the molesting.

Disregard the constabulary.
