Robert Rialmo takes the stand in Quintonio LeGrier case

posted by Joe Soto - 

The Chicago police officer who shot and killed Quintonio LeGrier, 19, took the stand to testify on Tuesday afternoon at a wrongful death civil trial.

Former Officer Robert Rialmo testified Tuesday and it was the first time the jury was able to see him. He has not been in court because his attorney said he doesn’t want the jury misinterpreting his client’s body language.

Rialmo looked nervous and annoyed at times when answering questions. He gave short one-word answers and often said he could not recall because it happened so long ago. He testified that him and his partner were watching a movie on Netflix lot across the police station when they got the call to respond to the LeGrier residence.
