    BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Three of six Baltimore Police officers have stood trial in the Freddie Gray case.

    Officer Caesar Goodson and Officer Edward Nero were cleared of all charges after separate bench trials, but Officer William Porter, the first to stand trial, will be retried in September.

    His first trial ended with a hung jury in December.

    Goodson was found not guilty on all charges by Judge Barry Williams on Thursday, June 23. He was the driver of the van during Gray's April 12, 2015 arrest.

    Four upcoming officer trials are scheduled to begin on the following dates:

    • State of Maryland v. Brian Rice: July 5, 2016 (charged with: involuntary manslaughter, assault/second degree, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment)
    • State of Maryland v. Garrett Miller: July 27, 2016 (charged with: assault/second degree, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment)
    • State of Maryland v William Porter: Sept. 6, 2016 (charged with: involuntary manslaughter, assault/second degree, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment)
    • State of Maryland v. Alicia White: Oct. 13, 2016 (charged with: involuntary manslaughter, assault/second degree, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment)


    Gray was arrested on April 12, 2015 after officers say he "fled unprovoked upon noticing police presence," placed unrestrained in a police van and transported to Western District.

    When officers attempted to remove Gray from the wagon he was no longer breathing and was found to be in cardiac arrest by a responding medic.

    He underwent surgery at Shock Trauma at and died on April 19, 2015.
