BREAKING: Prosecutors Drop All Remaining Charges Related To Death Of Freddie Gray

Baltimore Prosecutors have dropped all charges this morning against the three officers awaiting trial in the Freddie Gray case, effectively closing the books on the matter and leaving state without a conviction in the 25-year-old’s arrest and death, which sparked protests and riots in the city last year.

According to Law Newz The Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office has dropped all remaining charges against police officers related to the death of Freddie Gray.

Baltimore Sun reporter Kevin Rector just made the stunning announcement in a series of tweets earlier Wednesday morning.

Prosecutors appear to have made the decision to cut their losses after failing to obtain a single conviction in the cases to date.  Three officers were acquitted at bench trials earlier this year and the trial of a fourth officer ended in a hung jury in December 2015.  Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and two of the courtroom prosecutorsMichael Schatzow and Janice Bledsoe already face calls for disbarment over the handling of the cases.
