Officer Caesar Goodson’s Defense Challenges Investigation That Led to Administrative Charges

The Montgomery County internal affairs officer who interrogated Officer Caesar Goodson Jr. about his role in the arrest and death of Freddie Graywas subjected Tuesday to a withering cross-examination Tuesday, the second day of Goodson’s administrative trial.

Under questioning by Goodson attorney Sean Malone, Detective. Sgt. Thomas Curtis acknowledged that he hadn’t followed up with key witnesses about alleged false statements by Goodson, despite the fact that the allegation, if sustained at the trial, would lead to the officer’s firing.
