Cicero settles on cop lawsuit for $12M
CICERO – The attorney representing the family of Hector Ramos said he had mixed emotions about the multi-million dollar settlement reached with the town of Cicero earlier this week.
The family of Ramos was awarded just about $12 million to care for Hector Ramos, now 27, whose family said suffered severe trauma during a police raid on his family's apartment in the 2900 block of South 49th Avenue at about 10 p.m. on April 17, 2003.
According to the suit, the officers entered the apartment without a valid search warrant, announcing their offices or requesting permission to enter. Ramos, then 17, was arrested after police found two grams of marijuana and a pipe on his person.
