Kris Lakin avoided trial and settled a personal injury case filed against him.

The case, which was scheduled to be retiring Circuit Judge Nicholas Byron's final trial, settled for an undisclosed amount avoiding a Nov. 10 trial.

Lisa Longo alleged she was injured on April 27, 2005 when Kristopher Lakin collided with her at the intersection of Landmark Drive and Broadway in Alton.

Kris Lakin is the son of Tom Lakin, who is serving a six year sentence for various federal drug charges.

Longo alleged Lakin drove his 1999 Cadillac Escalade into the rear of her 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix after she stopped at the intersection for a red light.

Lakin denied any wrongdoing in the accident.

He was represented by the law firm of Reed, Armstrong, Gorman, Mudge & Morrissey in Edwardsville.

Longo was seeking damages in excess of $50,000 for permanent internal and external injuries to the muscles, disks, ligaments, tissues and nerves of her neck and back all of which continue to cause her to suffer great pain and mental anguish and medical expenses.

Longo was represented by Ronald Motil of Glen Carbon.
