U.S. DOJ will not criminally charge Freddie Gray officers
BALTIMORE —The U.S. Department of Justice will not pursue criminal charges against the Baltimore City police officers involved in the Freddie Gray case.
An official announcement from the DOJ is expected Wednesday.
The officers were charged by state prosecutors after Gray's neck was broken in the back of a police transport van in April 2015. The federal investigation started shortly thereafter.
Last year, Officer Caesar Goodson, Lt. Brian Rice and Officer Edward Nerowere acquitted, and prosecutors dropped charges against the remaining officers, Sgt. Alicia White and Officers Garrett Miller and William Porter.
