Today was the final day of the evidentiary hearing on the charges brought against four Chicago police officers related to the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald. The disciplinary cases of Sergeant Stephen Franko, and Police Officers Janet Mondragon, Daphne Sebastian, and Ricardo Viramontes have been taken under advisement by the Police Board. The Board will be meeting in closed session in May to consider these cases, and the Board will take final action and issue its written decision at a subsequent month’s public meeting.
