Homeless Man's Settlement Includes Donations to NAACP and Homeless Shelters

Sherman Ware's attorney Natalie Jackson announced that Collison has already sent a check to cover the victim's past and future medical bills and pain and suffering. She would not disclose the total amount of the undisclosed settlement. Collison also agreed to get counseling for alcohol abuse and to be treated for anger management, and to make donations of $1,000 each to three non-profit groups: the Seminole branch of the NAACP, Seminole Action Coalition Serving Our Needy and a Sanford drug rehabilitation center.

Both Collison and Ware have substance abuse problems, Jackson said.

That made her client more forgiving, she said. Ware has been arrested several times and understands that some people need many, many second chances, she said.

"Mr. Collison got lucky in getting Mr. Ware as a victim," she said.

Collison, whose father is a Sanford police lieutenant and whose grandfather is former Circuit Judge Kenneth Leffler, one of several heirs to a land fortune in Volusia County.

Jackson said she met with Ware at the jail Monday night and worked out the final pieces of the settlement.
