UC Ohio to Pay 4.85M & Tuition for 12 Children for Officers Murder


The family of Sam Dubose, a Cincinnati man killed by a policeman, will be paid $4.85 million by the university where the officer worked.

The University of Cincinnati will also provide tuition-free education for the 12 children of Samuel Dubose, 43, who was shot in the head by Ray Tensing during a traffic stop for no front license plate near campus.

In addition to the payment and the undergraduate tuition worth around $500,000, the university also promised an on-campus memorial in a statement released by the family on Monday.

University President Santa Ono, who expressed his “deepest sadness and regrets,” said that the agreement is “part of the healing process not only for the family but also for our university and Cincinnati communities.”

However, Dubose’s sister Terina Dubose-Allen told Cincinnati.com, “We’re not happy, we’re not satisfied — those aren’t the words.”

“The settlement means we’re moving forward and we can heal.”

Ray Tensing was indicted by a Grand Jury on murder charges in late July and still faces the murder trial.

Tensing was released on $1 million bond after his arrest and has a pre-trial hearing in February after multiple delays.
