Two Officers' Statements Ruled Admissible in Freddie Gray Case

October 13, 2015  | 

A Baltimore judge on Tuesday ruled that statements made by two of the six officers charged in Freddie Gray's arrest and death are admissible as evidence in their trials, and possibly the trials of their peers, reports the Baltimore Sun.

Judge Barry Williams denied motions by attorneys for a sergeant and an officer to suppress their statements to police investigators, which they had argued were obtained improperly.

Prosecutors said the statements were obtained properly.

Meanwhile, three other officers charged in the Gray case agreed to withdraw their motions to suppress their statements. They did so after Williams rejected their intentions to postpone hearings on the motions. Their trials are not scheduled until next year, and such hearings usually occur closer to trial. The officers could refile motions to suppress their statements at a later date.

The sixth officer did not provide police investigators with a statement.

Sounds like the sixth officer was the only one that had the knowledge to "remain silent!" Remember that if your in an OIS it is a homicide investigation first and internal later. Exercise your Miranda Rights and say nothing with out an attorney!
