Just a Quarter Million
- There is a potential settlement more than 10 years after the death of David Koschman at the hands of a member of former Mayor Richard Daley’s family.
Koschman was 21 years old back in 2004 when he was punched in the face during a bar fight. He hit his head and died 11 days later.
Daley’s nephew, Richard Vanecko, who wasn’t charged until seven years after the incident, pleaded guilty to hitting Koschman and served 60 days in jail.
Koschman’s family says there was a cover-up in the case from the very beginning all because Vanecko was connected.
The city of Chicago is reportedly set to settle the case, paying Koschman’s mother $250,000.
How about some individual liability for Vanecko? Maybe the file-hiders, too.
