Mosby called for system reform after the failure to find any criminal involvement in Gray's death. "We know that Freddie Gray did not kill himself," she contended.
"I would much rather prefer a judge render a not guilty verdict than to drop charges, because at some point cops have to fully go through the system and not get off in a partial way."
In the suit, the officers claim that Mosby and Cogen were aware the statement of charges filed against the officers and other statements Mosby made at a May 1, 2015 news conference announcing the charges "were false."
In the verdict, which came after a six-day trial, the judge also said that prosecutors did not prove a reckless endangerment charge against Nero over a failure to put a seat belt on Gray, noting that he had no direct role in putting Gray in the transport van to the jail.
On April 12, 2015, Gray, 25, was arrested and died a week later from complications relating to a spinal cord injury after riding in the back of a police van.
The motion was filed last Thursday (March 31) at the Baltimore City Circuit Court to have Garrett Miller testify at Nero's trial, which will begin May 10. The order was filed since Miller will most likely refuse to take the stand because of his right against self-incrimination, says the report. Prosecutors dealt with similar issues in the case of Officer William Porter.
