BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

An East Baton Rouge Parish jury has awarded Brian Townsend $239,000 dollars in a trial that lasted only five days.

Townsend was allegedly kicked in the groin by then BRPD officer Nathan Davis. Davis is now serving a six-year federal prison term for assaulting Townsend. The jury deliberated three hours and 15 minutes before making a decision.

Townsend says after a long 5 1/2 years, he's glad the whole matter is behind him.
