FREMONT — A Muslim police officer taken off the force immediately after being questioned by the FBI for possible links to terrorist groups has settled claims against the city and the Fremont Unified School District for $125,000.
Matthew Fernandes, a U.S. Army veteran and now former Fremont police officer, never was charged with any crimes in connection with the 2009 FBI inquiry.
