Edson Thevenin was murdered by the Troy PD in April 2016. In 2021, the City of Troy settled the a civil rights lawsuit brought to federal court by Cinthia Thevenin for $1.55 million. In September 2020, former District Attorney of Troy, Joel Abelove, was acquitted of all charges (perjury and obstruction) related to his handling of the Thevenin case. Having finally been brought before a judge by the Attorney General's Office, Judge Nichols let Abelove off once again.
