A Black Atlantan trans woman has been granted $1.5 million dollars after being wrongfully arrested and imprisoned for more than five months.

In 2015, Ju’Zema Goldring was arrested for jaywalking and a false claim there was cocaine disclosed in a stress ball within her purse.

Officers Vladimir Henry and Juan Restrepo reportedly called Goldring anti-trans slurs and subjected her to an “invasive” search, as reported by The New York Times. “[Goldring] spent nearly six months in the Fulton County Jail based on this seemingly bogus charge,” Judge Ray wrote in his ruling.
