Marilyn Mosby breaks silence on Freddie Gray case after gag order lifted
BALTIMORE (WBFF) – With no convictions secured in the Freddie Gray case, the remaining trials were dropped on Wednesday.
The announcement came following a special pre-trial motions hearing about Officer Garrett Miller’s trial. Out of that meeting came the news that all charges would be dropped against Miller -- as well as the trials of the remaining officers charged in Gray’s arrest.
The development brings the criminal case to a close, although the Baltimore City Police Department is still conducting internal investigations into its six officers charged in the case.
State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, who prosecuted the case, spoke at press conference in downtown Baltimore late Wednesday morning. She had been under a gag order during the trials.
During the press conference Mosby said she and her team stood by the medical examiner's decision to rule Gray's death a homicide.
"We do not believe Freddie Gray killed himself," she said.
According to Baltimore Police spokesperson T.J. Smith, pay for the officers will be restored and they will be on administrative duties while an administrative review is conducted by the Montgomery County Police Department -- with the assistance of the Howard County Police Department.
