Our South Florida green screen video production studio (servicing, Miami, Fort Lauderdale and the Palm Beach tri-county areas) is covering the latest developments in Baltimore. We welcome back, criminal defense attorney, Mark Eiglarsh who was on Fox News’ The Kelly File, discussing the decision of the State’s Attorney, Marilyn Mosby, to charge six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray. Attorneys for the police officers filed a motion calling for the case to be thrown out and have State Attorney Mosby removed from the case. The motion cites alleged bias and conflicts of interests because the prosecutor has personal ties to potential witnesses and that a family attorney for the Gray family is a friend and attorney for Mosby. Furthermore, the motion states that Mosby and her husband, who is a city councilman, stand to benefit financially and politically from the case.
Three of the six officers have been charged with false imprisonment of Freddie Gray, after the prosecutor concluded that Gray’s arrest was illegal. Freddie Gary’s arrested by officers and charged with being in possession of an illegal switchblade. Mr. Gray suffered severe spinal cord injuries after he was arrested and taken into police custody. The prosecutor says Freddie Gray died after he was placed faced down in the police van. He was handcuffed and shackled with leg irons and was not buckled in when placed in the vehicle. Mosby claims the officers ignored Gray’s pleas for medical attention. When paramedics arrived, Gray was in critical condition, suffering cardiac arrest. Mosby deemed the officers lacked probable cause in arresting Gray and that the knife found on his person was legal.
