FREDDIE GRAY: Prosecutors Face Legal ‘Minefield’ Over Immunized Testimony

Before the next Baltimore police officer stands trial in the arrest and death of Freddie Gray, prosecutors will face a barrage of legal questions about whether they gleaned any evidence or strategic advantage from his forced testimony in the trial of another officer in May.

One state high court judge called the process a legal “minefield.” An assistant attorney general representing the prosecution said it could present a “banquet of consequences” for them.

Officer Garrett Miller, 27, was compelled against his will to testify in the trial of Officer Edward Nero under a limited form of immunity that prevents prosecutors from using anything he said on the stand against him at his own trial.
