Charnel Robinson said the money offered no respite from the pain that began with her son Christopher’s death in October 2008.

“I would much rather have my son and the life we had before,” she told the Daily News on Thursday.

The settlement came just six days after Christopher would have celebrated his 22nd birthday.
