One word; guilty could have sent him to jail for 30 years. Two words; not guilty set Officer Caesar Goodson, Jr. free. He drove the van transporting Freddie Gray just days before his death.
Goodson could be seen hugging family and friends after the verdict came down. Gray’s family is still after justice.
Billy Murphy, the Gray family’s attorney, held a news conference Thursday. During it, he spoke on behalf of the family, saying they still support the efforts of Baltimore State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby to keep law enforcement accountable and to reduce police brutality.
But, frustration still looms over the recent acquittals of Officer Edward Nero and now, Goodson.
“Even though the family gives its 100 percent support to one of the most courageous prosecutors in the US, Marilyn Mosby…They are nonetheless disappointed,” Murphy said.
