Criminal charges filed against Baltimore Police officers in the death of Freddie Gray

Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced the office has probable cause to file criminal charges against Baltimore Police officers in the death of Freddie Gray. The announcement was made Friday morning, the day after the SAO received the police department’s file on its investigation into Gray’s death.

 Giving details on the arrest, Mosby said the officers "failed to establish probable cause for Mr. Gray's arrest" and "illegally arrested Mr. Gray." Freddie Gray died April 19 after spending a week in a coma following an arrest partially caught on camera in West Baltimore. 

Charging documents claim Gray was “arrested without force or incident.” In a statement the Gray family attorney said the 25-year-old’s spine was 80% severed. According to WJLA, preliminary findings from the medical examiner’s office indicate that Freddie Gray’s fatal injury was caused inside the transport van. Police have previously confirmed that Gray was not placed in a seat belt while in the back of the police van during the time of his arrest.
