Unrepentant cop-killer Lamont Pride was sentenced Thursday to 45 years toÂ life in prison for the 2011 murder of OfficerÂ Peter Figoski after a Brooklyn armed robbery.
The slain officer’s four daughters joined his mother and ex-wife in theÂ Brooklyn courtroom for the sentencing of the killer who destroyed the family’sÂ dreams with a bullet from his 9-mm. pistol.
The heart-rending statements from the Figoski clan left some people weepingÂ during an emotional hearing after which Pride received the maximum sentence forÂ murder and two other charges.
“We have many wonderful memories of him, but there will always be that emptyÂ space at the table and that special card that will never be sent,” she said.
“Peter will always be missed by many people. Lamont Pride will be missed byÂ no one.”
One of the killer’s brothers interrupted: “I will miss him!” He was quicklyÂ hushed before the six Figoski family members continued with theirÂ statements.
Pride, 28, was convicted of felony murder on Feb. 11 for gunning down theÂ 47-year-old veteran cop while fleeing a Brooklyn apartment after robbing a potÂ dealer.
But he offered no apology to the Figoski family before the sentence wasÂ handed down, instead addressing his own relatives.
“I just want to apologize to my family for putting them though this,” saidÂ Pride before he was led away. “I want to let my two brothers know as long as IÂ got you in my corner ’til the end, we’re gonna stand tall.
Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Alan Marrus ordered Pride’s sentences forÂ murder, burglary and aggravated manslaughter to run consecutively beforeÂ addressing the Figoski daughters.
