A Mason County man who lost his penis and a testicle after he contracted a flesh-eating bacteria while in prison has won a $300,000 settlement from the state Department of Corrections.

Charlie Manning, 61, said Monday that he agreed to the settlement with the Department of Corrections (DOC) last month because he wanted the ordeal to be over. After paying his bills and attorney's fees, Manning said, he will be left with about $115,000 and plans to hunker down in his Lake Cushman motor home and live out the rest of his life...............

Manning was sentenced to 13 months in prison for threatening a neighbor and stealing the man's pistol during a drunken argument in 2004 in Mason County. He also had at least two drunken-driving convictions and a third felony on his record.

In 2004, medical staff at Stafford Creek Correctional Center in Aberdeen diagnosed Manning as having an allergic reaction to cold medicine. He was later diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis -- flesh-eating bacteria -- caused by an internal abscess.

By the time Manning was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, the bacteria had spread to his pelvic region. Surgeons at Harborview performed a lifesaving surgery and removed several pounds of flesh, including his penis and a testicle, Manning's attorney said.
Surgeons eventually made a replacement penis with skin from his thigh.

Here is the rest of the disturbing story that just gave OCD. Excuse me I have to go wash my hands again.
Yikes man, as if there isn't enough to worry about.

I don't think that'd be enough compensation for having a thighpenis.
I am wondering why they left one ball? At that point you may as well run the table.
There goes yet another Manning without a full set of balls.
