State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced this morning that her office has also found probable cause to pursue criminal charges in connection to the case.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced this morning in a press conference that police officers involved in the arrest and transportation of Freddie Gray have been charged with murder and manslaughter.
Six police officers have been charged. The most serious charge is second degree murder.
Caesar R. Goodson Jr. was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office.
Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
Officer William G. Porter was charged with manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office.
Sgt. Alicia D. White was each charged with manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office.
Edward M. Nero was charged with assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
Garrett E. Miller was charged with assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
In the press conference reported that Freddie Gray repeatedly asked for medical assistance and said he couldn’t breathe. At the police station destination it was discovered that he was in respiratory arrest and then cardiac arrest. Gray was then transported to the R Cowley Shocktrauma Unit.
Moments before State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby held the press conference, Baltimore City’s Fraternal Order of Police released a letter it sent the attorney asking she appoint a special independent prosecutor to look into Freddie Gray’s death.
Baltimore’s top prosecutor announced criminal charges against all six officers suspended after a man named Freddie Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury in police custody. ”Mr. Gray’s death was a homicide,” State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby declared.
Thursday, the Baltimore police handed over to prosecutors the results of their initial investigation into the fatal injury suffered by a Freddie Gray, who was in their custody.
In a new development Thursday, there was a discovery that the police wagon carrying the Freddie Gray made a previously undisclosed stop en route to a Baltimore Police Department police station.
The new stop turned up on video taken from “a privately owned camera,” according to deputy police commissioner, Kevin Davis. The stop was “previously unknown to us” or previously unreported.
New information released by Baltimore police say an additional stop was made by the police van transporting Freddie Gray.
