Grand jury indicts all six officers in Freddie Gray case

A grand jury brought charges against all six Baltimore Police officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced in a press conferecne this afternoon.

The jurors agreed to pursue the most severe charges originally brought by Mosby on May 1, including second-degree depraved-heart murder, manslaughter by vehicle (gross negligence), and manslaughter by vehicle (criminal negligence) for officer Caesar Goodson Jr. Officers Goodson, William Porter, Edward Nero, Garrett Miller, and Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice still face charges of involuntary manslaughter, second-degree assault, and misconduct in office.

Previously, charges were filed against Rice and Nero for false imprisonment, but those were dropped. A count of reckless endangerment, which carries a maximum sentence of five years, was added for all six officers.

The officers are scheduled for arraignment on July 2.
