A 50-year-old prisoner has won a $750,000 settlement from

Manhattan Detention Center after officials and doctors

ignored an erection he suffered which lasted around six


Rodney Cotton was taking the anti-psychotic drug,

Risperdal, when the bizarre erection began. When he

complained, prison officials just gave him an ice-pack and

Tylenol to take care of himself. Rather than help his

condition, the items worsened it. It wasn’t until he saw a

third doctor that he received the care he needed, according

to Huffington Post.

Just like the story of creation, his penis finally rested on the

seventh day but Cotton successfully claimed in court that

as a result of the prison’s negligence, he now suffers from

permanent damage and “loss of function” in his genitalia.

"They took my manhood,” he said. “It’s embarrassing.

We’re here to create. I can’t perform my duties as a man

anymore.” The judge awarded him the huge amount as

compensation for his troubles.
