A flash-bang stun grenade was thrown into Bou Bou’s crib, burning his throat and face and landing him in the intensive care unit.
The uncle, Wanis Thonetheva, was not at the home during the raid. He was later arrested elsewhere.
Federal authorities later accused now-former Habersham County Deputy Nikki Autry of providing false information on the affidavit used to secure the no-knock warrant, but she was acquitted last year.
The Phonesavanh family previously settled civil cases against Habersham County and the city of Cornelia for around $1 million apiece.
Davis, the attorney, said Friday that Bou Bou was still recovering from his injuries. The child has difficulty swallowing and more surgeries are coming up, Davis said.
“He’s got a painful road ahead,” Davis said. “The whole family, they still struggle with the trauma of what they went through, and every medical procedure is a reminder.”
