The Iowa State Appeal Board has approved a 700-thousand dollar settlement with two Wisconsin women for the way they were treated while spending time in the state-run juvenile home in Toledo.

Laera Reed and Paige Ray-Cluney get 170-thousand dollars each, with their attorney fees of 340-thousand dollars also covered. The women told the court they were held in seclusion cells and the way officials treated them led to their suicide attempts. Four months ago Wiscoinson officials agreed to pay the two nearly two-million dollars for the way they were treated at the Copper Lake juvenile prison.
