$450,000 Verdict Award for Victim Beaten by Off-Duty Police Officer

A jury in Illinois Winnebago County awarded Ryan Hallett $450,000 against Richmond police officer Bryan Quilici. While Quilici was off-duty, he attacked Hallett, and the jury found the officer was acting officially. The jury further found that Quilici used excessive force, failed to intervene, and denied Hallett medical care on February 20, 2005.

Quilici was convicted of vie felonies related to the incident, including mob action and official misconduct. The jury’s verdict was rendered in June 2009. Earlier that year, Hallett settled claims against police officers Ron Pilati and Jermone Volstad, the village of Spring Grove, and the women who were with the officers during the incident. See: Hallett v. Village of Richmond, Case No. 05-C-50044 (N.D. Ill., 2006).
