Robinson’s family has said he suffered from mental illness. His mother, Monteria Robinson, has never stopped fighting for her son, telling The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in 2020 that former Fulton District Attorney Paul Howard “failed my family” after promising to indict the officers involved.
Howard said the investigation was hamstrung by the refusal of officers to cooperate and the absence of body camera footage.
“My son’s body is all the body cam you need,” Robinson said. “I wake up every day with anxiety. I’ve been in fight mode ever since my son was killed. I want closure.”
But when Howard lost his position to Fani Willis, the new DA promised swifter action. In May, Willis vowed to quickly have resolutions on police shooting cases such as Robinson’s.
The District Attorney’s Office declined to discuss the indictment late Tuesday.
