A West Philadelphia man who spent two days in jail two years ago after he was wrongfully arrested in the hit-and-run death of a Villanova student is now suing several members of the Haverford Township Police Department, The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting.
Kenny Woods claims that, despite his short stint in jail, he is presently unemployed because of the arrest.
According to the paper, Chief Carmen D. Pettine, Sgt. Daniel Wallower, Detective Jere Goodman and Officer Thomas McDermott are defendants in the lawsuit that was filed last week in federal court.
Woods was arrested on September 29, 2010 after a crash in Haverford Township killed Villanova student Daniel Giletta, 21, and seriously injured his roommate.
A day after his arrest, Bryn Mawr man Donnie Sayers confessed to the crime. He ultimately pleaded guilty in May of 2011.
