Freddie Gray: Prosecutors Try to Paint ‘Rough Ride’ Scenario; Defense Questions Homicide Ruling

BALTIMORE, June 14 (UPI) — Prosecutors on Tuesday continued to lay groundwork for a scenario that involves a rough ride to the police station for Freddie Gray before his death last year, as the defense countered with the dissenting opinions of two medical experts.

In day four of the trial of Baltimore officer Caesar Goodson, prosecutors continued to lay groundwork for their theory, which they believe explains the severe spinal cord injury Gray received before the van arrived at the station.


A prosecution witness testified that he retraced the route the van took on the afternoon of April 12, 2015, with the help of surveillance footage. However, the witness did not say Goodson, the van’s driver, had been driving recklessly or dangerously.
