Despite Acquittals, Prosecution Expected to Continue Freddie Gray Trials of Officers

July 19, 2016  | 

Even though a judge acquitted a third Baltimore officer of charges stemming from the in-custody death of Freddie Gray Monday, prosecutors seem to be willing to try the remaining three cases amid mounting pressure to call it quits.

Rice's acquittal is the fourth consecutive blow to the state's case, but the next officer remains scheduled to stand trial next week. Prosecutors have given no indication that they plan to change course.

At a news conference, Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 3 President Gene Ryan called for the remaining cases to be dismissed, calling it "malicious prosecution against the remaining three officers."

Even Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, a Republican, chimed in.

"My personal thinking is they should not go further" with the rest of the trials, he said after Rice's acquittal. "It's a waste of time and money. But that's up to the court system to decide."

Gray died April 19, 2015, a week after he suffered a critical spinal injury in the back of a police wagon, ABC News reports.
