(Waukegan, IL) The father of the Highland Park mass shooting suspect has pleaded not guilty to charges filed against him late last year. Robert Crimo Jr. was officially indicted on Wednesday by a Lake County Grand Jury on 7 counts of reckless conduct that were filed last December. Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart says the 58-year-old should be held accountable for signing off on a firearms card for his son, Robert Crimo III, in 2019. In July of last year, the 22-year-old allegedly opened fire on an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, killing 7 and wounding several others. Robert Crimo Jr. is due back in court in early April for a hearing…the younger Crimo isn’t due back in court until May.
