Children, Family, and Friday: Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County @balleralert MOR t ASSO Jury Awards Korryn Gaines' Family $38 Million In Civil Case Against Baltimore County - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € A jury ruled on Friday the family of Korryn Gaines, the 23-year-old Baltimore mother who was fatally shot by a police officer in 2016, will receive $38 million. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € Two years ago, Gaines became a victim of police brutality when officers entered her home on the morning of Aug. 1, 2016 attempting to arrest her on disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and multiple traffic violation charges. The mother originally refused to open the door, but police got a key from the landlord and walked in. They came in to find Gaines on the floor holding a shot gun along with her then 5-year-old son, Kodi. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € The incident became a six-hour standoff between Gaines and police. Gaines who aimed her gun at officer Royce Ruby gave him the right to justly shooting the young mother. Ruby ended up killing Gaines and injuring her son. This Friday, an all female jury of six made a ruling after just three hours. They decided Kodi would be awarded $32.8 million, Gaines’ daughter, Karsyn Courtney, would be awarded $4.5 million, and her father and mother will each receive $300,000. The family was then awarded an additional $300,000. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € After the three-week trial, the jury had came down to these deliberations: the first shot the officer had fired was not reasonable; they then distributed damages on the grounds that Baltimore County had violated the Gaines’ civil rights and had committed battery on the mother and son. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β€œThis win is for all of my sisters in the movement who have lost their children to police violence,” Gaines’ mother, Rhanda Dormeus.
