Judge Denies Plea to Block Freddie Gray Evidence
BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore judge won’t prohibit defense attorneys from releasing evidence in the high-profile Freddie Gray case.
Judge Barry Williams denied State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s motion for a protective order Friday, citing insufficient cause to grant such a request.
The state had argued that defense attorneys for the six police officers charged in Gray’s death would selectively publicize pieces of evidence favorable to their clients that could “jeopardize the ability to conduct a fair and impartial trial.”
The state said it did not object to making all of the evidence public.
Williams in his order noted that the defense attorneys have not publicized any discovery.
Gray died from a neck injury he suffered while riding in a Baltimore police van in April.
