Defense Set To Push Hard To Acquit Freddie Gray Van Driver

BALTIMORE (AP) — Now that prosecutors have rested their case, attorneys for a Baltimore police officer on trial for murder in the death of a black prisoner whose neck was broken in a police transport van are set to push hard for acquittal.

The defense is boosted by a legal setback for the prosecution and tough cross examination of a key witness who is important to proving Freddie Gray was mortally injured after he was given a “rough ride.”
