Baltimore Agrees to New Trial Board Makeup in Freddie Gray Officers’ Cases

Attorneys for the city of Baltimore agreed Tuesday to replace the board of outside law enforcement officials presiding over forthcoming disciplinary trials of three police officers in relation to the arrest of Freddie Gray, bowing to objections raised in court by the officers’ defense counsel.

“We will recompose the panel voluntarily,” City Solicitor Andre Davis told Baltimore Circuit Judge Jeannie Hong during an expedited morning hearing to consider a defense motion for a delay in the cases.
