Mistrial For William Porter In Freddie Gray Case

By Annika Harris

Judge Barry Williams declared a mistrial today for Baltimore police officer William Porter, who had been charged with manslaughter, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, and misconduct in office in the April 19th death of Freddie Gray. The jury was hung after they began deliberating Monday afternoon.

Gray died a week after his neck was broken while riding in back of a police van.

NBC News reports that the mistrial is viewed as a legal blow for the prosecution, who figured a conviction for Porter would strengthen their case against van driver Caesar Goodson, Jr. and the other five officers charged in Gray’s death.

The remaining trials are set for early 2016. An administrative hearing on Thursday will determine a new court date for Porter.

The jury was composed of four Black women, three Black men, three white women, and two white men.
