The police officers who ignored the cries of Baltimore native Freddie Gray, resulting in his mysterious death, will get their day in court.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Administrative Judge W. Michel Pierson has set the trial date to October 13th with a motions hearing on September 2nd. Judge Barry G. Williams will preside over the trial. Each of the six officers plead guilty in writing.
Williams has been an Associate Judge since 2005 in Baltimore Circuit Court. He has been chair of the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council for Baltimore from 2012-2014. Williams comes with a lot of praise over the cases he has worked, and is expected by many to be more than fair when he presides over the case. During the trial, Williams cannot reveal any details of the trial to anyone.
