6 Baltimore Police Officers Jailed in Freddie Gray Death

BALTIMORE (KUSI) – The Baltimore state’s attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby, announced her findings in the case of the death of Freddie Gray Friday morning, and has ruled that his death was in fact a homicide. One of the country’s youngest prosecutors, Mosby announced that the six officers involved in the apprehension and death of Gray will all face criminal charges, including murder and manslaughter in the arrest and fatal injury of Freddie Gray.

All six officers have paid bail. Bail for Caesar Goodson, Alicia White, William Porter and Brian Rice had been set at $350,000 each. Edward Nero and Garrett Miller each had a bail of $250,000.

Officer Caeser Goodson faces the harshest charge, second-degree depraved heart murder, a charge which can carry a sentence of up to 30 years in jail. Goodson will also face charges of manslaughter and second-degree assault.

According to the Baltimore Police Department, Gray was initially arrested on suspicion of possessing a switchblade. It turned out, however, according to Mosby, that the knife found on Gray’s person was not a switchblade and was in fact legal under Maryland law.

“No crime was committed by Freddie Gray,” Mosby said.
