Today begins the third day of deliberations in the “Freddie Gray” trial of Baltimore Police Officer William Porter.

Porter is on trial for involuntary manslaughter (10 year penalty), second-degree assault (10 year penalty), reckless endangerment (5 year penalty), and misconduct in office (undefined penalty). These charges stem from the in-custody spinal injury of Freddie Gray in a police van following his arrest on April 12. Gray would die some days later.

We’ve covered the “Freddie Gray” matter extensively from its inception, here at Legal Insurrection.

We’ll keep you updated here as news emerges over the course of the day.
