6 Officers Charged In Freddie Gray’s Death
All have posted bail.
Freddie Gray's death was ruled a homicide by Marilyn Mosby, Maryland state's attorney for Baltimore City, on Friday. Six police officers were charged in Gray's death, for a crimes including second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct, and false imprisonment.
All six officers were arrested Friday. By Friday night, each had posted bail. Bail was set at $350,000 for four officers (Caesar Goodson, Alicia White, William Porter, Brian Rice) and $250,000 for two officers (Edward Nero, Garrett Miller.) One, White, had yet to be released from custody.
At 35, Mosby is the youngest chief prosecutor in a major American city. On Friday, she described Freddie Gray's arrest as illegal, and identified Gray's fatal spinal injury as the result of being handcuffed and shackled without a seatbelt in a police van.
"I've had experiences as an African-American woman where I've been harassed by police, or my husband has been pulled over and harassed by police," she said on Friday in Baltimore. "Does that give me a perspective? I think it does."
