The civil trial against Officer Robert Rialmo and the City of Chicago continued on Monday as Quintonio LeGrier’s mother and Rialmo’s partner testified.
“I miss hugging him. I miss telling him I love him and not being able to talk to him,” Janet Cooksey, the 19-year-old’s mother, said.
After getting into an argument Christmas day, she dropped him off at his father’s house. His parting words to his mother were, “Remember this day.”
On Dec. 26, 2015 Rialmo responded to a disturbance at an apartment in the 4700 block of West Erie Street around 4:30 a.m. where LeGrier was staying with his father. Rialmo fatally shot the teen.
