Baltimore Prosecutor Rebuked by Judge in Police Case

Timothy Birdnow

Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Moseby has been sternly rebuked by a municipal judge for "stall tactics" in her demand that a police officer be forced to testify against other officers.

Western Journalism has the story:

"Baltimore City Circuit Judge Barry Williams called the prosecutors’ motion a "stall tactic,” since it would have postponed indefinitely the trials of officers who are part of the so-called "Baltimore Six,” according to Reuters.

Judge Williams ruled that Porter does not have to testify against Officers Garrett Miller and Edward Nero, and Lt. Brian Rice. In contrast, the judge held last month that Porter did have to testify against Officer Caesar R. Goodson, Jr. and Sgt. Alicia White, after being granted limited immunity from prosecutors.

End excerpt.

Before this is over I suspect all of the charges will wind up being dropped, as Moseby has been more interested in a political witch hunt than in actually pursuing justice.
