September 8, 2010
(ChattahBox U.S. News) – Rodney King, a man who became the center of a race debate in the early 1990′s when he was the subject of a brutal beating by four white police officers, has announced that he will be marrying a woman he met during the trial who served on his jury.
Cynthia Kelley was the only black juror on the panel during the controversial trial that led to a $3.8 million payout to King, who was beaten on tape by police officers during a chase. She was also one of the only jurors who wanted to give him the full settlement.
