A look at cases involving officers charged with misconduct

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 08:42
Many observers were surprised by the swiftness of State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's decision to charge six Baltimore Police officers in the death of Freddie Gray on Friday, just one day after receiving the results of a police investigation. One lawyer hired by the police union called it a rush to judgment.

Baltimore homicide charges could face swift initial court test

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 08:31
The chief Baltimore prosecutor, who came out swinging on Friday with charges against six police officers in the death of a 25-year-old man, could be quickly asked to disclose some of the potential evidence she has collected. At a news conference Friday, Marilyn Mosby accused the officers of illegally arresting Freddie Gray, placing him in a police van without a seatbelt and with his legs shackled and his hands cuffed, and then ignoring his pleas for medical help. Mosby charged the officer who drove the van with second-degree murder and the others with lesser charges, including manslaughter. Defendants charged with serious crimes in Maryland are generally entitled to request a preliminary hearing, at which prosecutors must present enough material to convince a judge they had probable cause to bring charges, lawyers experienced in Maryland criminal law said.

Colorado woman who stole fetus stabbed victim with lava lamp: prosecutors

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 05/02/2015 - 07:46
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A Colorado woman who police say admitted cutting the fetus from a pregnant stranger stabbed her victim first with shards of glass from a broken lava lamp before performing a crude Cesarean section, court documents showed on Friday. Dynel Catrece Lane, 34, is charged with attempted first-degree murder, felony assault and unlawful termination of a pregnancy stemming from the attack in March on Michelle Wilkins in the town of Longmont, 30 miles north of Denver. After the two women talked for about an hour, Lane asked Wilkins to come into the basement of the home, where she attacked the younger woman, smashing a lava lamp over Wilkins' head, prosecutors said. After she rendered Wilkins unconscious, Lane used a knife to slice open the victim's abdomen and remove the fetus, prosecutors said.

Residents shouted with joy, embraced one another and honked car horns to hail the swift action by Baltimore city's chief prosecutor to file charges in the death of Gray, a black man who suffered severe spinal injuries while in police custody. "I am proud for Baltimore," said Mae McKinney, 48, waving a large American flag. "I feel so happy, mostly happy that this wasn't swept under the rug and someone did something about it." A festive crowd gathered in West Baltimore, where Gray was arrested on April 12, chanting "Freddie! Freddie!" Uniformed police officials mingled in the crowd, while others in riot gear and National Guard troops stood at the side. Dozens of buildings and vehicles were burned, 20 police officers were injured and more than 200 people were arrested.
