Baltimore Cop Driver In Freddie Gray Death Found Not Guilty

Caesar Goodson, the driver of the van in which Baltimore man Freddie Gray sustained a fatal spinal injury, was acquitted of second-degree murder on Thursday. Goodson, 46, faced charges surrounding the death of Gray, who died in police custody last year — a week after he was in the van. Two other officers have been tried in court surrounding Gray’s death. One case ended in a hung jury, and another officer was acquitted entirely. Other charges brought against Goodson included assault, misconduct, involuntary manslauhter and reckless endangerment. He was acquitted for all of them.
