Freddie Gray hearing: police officers statements at issue
Oct. 13, 2015
BALTIMORE (AP) — A judge is holding a hearing on the admissibility of statements made to investigators by Baltimore police officers charged in connection with Freddie Gray's death.
All six officers appeared Tuesday before Judge Barry Williams, who is to determine whether their still undisclosed statements will be allowed at trial.
Officer William Porter, the sole officer to waive his appearance at a hearing last month, is in court Tuesday. His trial is to begin Nov. 30. The others facing charges are Edward Nero, Garrett Miller and Caesar Goodson, Brian Rice and Alicia White.
All face assault and reckless endangerment and misconduct in office charges. Porter, Rice, White and Goodson also face manslaughter charges. Goodson, who drove the police van in which Gray was critically injured, faces an additional charge of "depraved-heart" murder.
