In a little less than a month, the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray will be arraigned in Baltimore Circuit Court. There are a number of questions outstanding in this case –more will crop up as more details emerge – but some big ones have already developed.
Former Baltimore prosecutor Debbie Hines says, “Without having one of the police officers testify against the others, the prosecution doesn’t have a witness who can say this is exactly what happened, this is what officer Goodson said, this is what officer whatever said. She doesn’t have that,” Hines says.
Baltimore NPR affiliate WYPR reporter Chris Connelly asked some thought provoking questions on the Freddie Gray case of lawyers who have experience on both sides of the aisle with criminal cases to get their perspective.
