Baltimore Prosecutor Blasts Document Leaks In Gray Case
The Baltimore State Attorney's harsh words regarding document leaks in the case of Freddie Gray provide a cautionary tale on anonymous sources.By Ben Lawson | May 1, 2015
Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby had some stern words Friday for the law enforcement officials who leaked confidential information to the press regarding the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.
“I strongly condemn anyone in law enforcement with access to trial evidence who has leaked information prior to the resolution of this case. You are only damaging our ability to conduct a fair and impartial process for all parties involved." said Mosby.
Those strong words were likely spurred by this report from The Washington Post. The Post cites a police document provided by an anonymous source. That document details an account from a prisoner who was in the police van during Gray's arrest. That prisoner said Gray was intentionally trying to injure himself while inside the van.
