It's hard to say that justice has been served for the wrongful death of Sean Levert, but at-least his widow, Angela Lowe, can now move on with the $4 million settlement she was finally awarded.
Sean Levert, son of O'Jays member Eddie Levert and brother of late R&B crooner Gerald Levert was jailed at the Cuyahoga County Jail in Cleveland March 24, 2008, for failing to pay nearly $90,000 in child support. He died in jail six days later, which the coroner said was in part due to withdrawal after being denied his prescription anxiety medication.

“No amount of money will bring my husband back,” Angela Lowe, Levert’s widow, told WKYC-TV. “I believe the county and staff were fair to my family. Now I must move on and take care of my sons.”
