Disciplinary Trial Begins For Van Driver In Freddie Gray Case

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The last push to hold one Baltimore Police officer accountable in the death of Freddie Gray will take place on Monday. That’s according to our media partners at The Baltimore Sun.

Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. is the driver of the police van where Gray suffered fatal spinal cord injuries in April of 2015. He was acquitted of murder in the death of the 25-year-old.

He now faces a police disciplinary trial for alleged violations of department policies. The officer faces more than 20 charges.

The charges include providing a false statement about the circumstances surrounding Gray’s arrest and neglecting his duty to keep Gray safe by failing to secure him in a seat belt.
