The Columbian reported the county settled with 57-year-old Larry Davis of Vancouver and 49-year-old Alan Northrop of Woodland to end a federal lawsuit. County commissioners approved terms of the loan Tuesday.
The county wasn't insured in 1993 when the two were convicted of raping a woman in La Center. Later DNA testing cleared the men and their lawyers said the county was negligent because a detective failed to check out other leads in the case.
