Baltimore Lieutenant Cleared in Freddie Gray Case to Receive $127K in Back Pay

Baltimore police Lt. Brian S. Rice, who was acquitted of manslaughter, misconduct and other charges in the death of Freddie Gray, is set to receive about $127,000 in back pay.

Baltimore police Lt. Brian S. Rice, who was acquitted of manslaughter, misconduct and other charges in the death of Freddie Gray, is set to receive about $127,000 in back pay.

The city's Board of Estimates is scheduled to authorize a payment of $126,916 to Rice. Rice and three other officers charged with felonies in connection with Gray's death were suspended without pay, under department policy. Having been acquitted, Rice is now entitled to back pay under that policy, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Rice was suspended without pay from May 1, 2015, when he was charged by the state's attorney's office, until July 18 of this year, when Circuit Judge Barry Williams found Rice not guilty of all charges.

"Being suspended without pay for over a year has been financially devastating to Lt. Rice and his family," said Michael Belsky, Rice's attorney.
