Who Is Judge In Baltimore Cop Trials?
Judge Barry Williams declared Officer Goodson not guilty of second-degree depraved murder on Thursday.
Goodson faces the most serious charges in the Freddie Gray trial, including second-degree “depraved-heart” murder, manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office, and reckless endangerment charges. He opted for a bench trial in early June.
Officer Goodson — who faces second-degree depraved heart murder as well as manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment charges — was responsible for getting him to a hospital, Porter said.
Claiming defamation and false arrest, two more Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie have filed suit against State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby, reports The Baltimore Sun. Officer Edward M. Nero, who was cleared on all charges last month, and Officer Garrett E. Miller, who is still awaiting trial, filed the joint lawsuit against […]
Goodson’s fellow officers involved say that he is to blame for not ensuring Freddie Gray’s safety in the back of the police van.
In the verdict, which came after a six-day trial, the judge also said that prosecutors did not prove a reckless endangerment charge against Nero over a failure to put a seat belt on Gray, noting that he had no direct role in putting Gray in the transport van to the jail.
On April 12, 2015, Gray, 25, was arrested and died a week later from complications relating to a spinal cord injury after riding in the back of a police van.
