The first hearings of the 6 officers involved with the death of Freddie Gray begin today in Baltimore and police have been alerted to be prepared for protests.
Six Baltimore police officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death are due in court Wednesday as the city braces for what could happen afterward.
The pretrial hearing comes almost five months after Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury while being transported in a police van.
“Mr. Gray suffered a severe and critical neck injury as a result of being handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained inside of the (Baltimore Police Department) wagon,” Marilyn Mosby, the state’s attorney for the city of Baltimore, said in announcing the charges.
The six officers face charges ranging from false imprisonment to involuntary manslaughter. All six have pleaded not guilty.
