Allegations Shade Indicted Baltimore Officers’ Careers

Baltimore Police Detective Jemell Rayam appeared in court in November 2015 to answer questions over one of his arrests. The defendant’s attorney said Rayam’s account didn’t add up. Moreover, the resident of the home where police said they found drugs said the officers had entered and searched without a warrant — and said they put a gun to her head when she tried to call 911.

Circuit Judge Barry Williams called Rayam’s testimony “incredible,” and suppressed all evidence in the case. Prosecutors dropped the charges.
