Freddie Gray case | State vs Officer Caesar Goodson | Day 6

Goodson trial 16After state prosecutors rested their case against Baltimore Police Officer Caesar Goodson J. in the death of Freddie Gray on Wednesday, proceedings were scheduled to continue Thursday morning with discussion of a defense request for acquittal.

Defense attorneys for Goodson filed a written motion at the conclusion of the state’s case asking Circuit Judge Barry G. Williams to issue a judgment of acquittal, based on the defense claim that prosecutors had not proven Goodson’s guilt to a reasonable degree on the charges against him – including second-degree depraved heart murder.

Such motions are standard at the midway point in trials, after prosecutors have rested their case and before the defense mounts its own. Williams could acquit Goodson of all, some, or none of the charges. If he does not acquit Goodson of all the charges, the trial will proceed with the defense’s case.

On Wednesday, the defense suggested that it would “truncate” its case after seeing all of the evidence presented by the prosecution. It did not provide a reason.

The prosecution concluded its case after calling a police expert witness who testified about so-called rough rides but couldn’t say whether Goodson, the driver of the van in which Gray was injured, gave such a ride to Gray.

  89. How was Freddie Gray combative? Has screaming in pain become combative?

  92. How so? Screaming in pain is called resisting. #FreddieGray couldn’t walk. Police dragged him to the van.

    Here’s my prediction:

    One of these cops is taking a hit for the killer cops team. And it’s pointing towards Goodson.
