Our “Legal Eagles” stopped by “Access Indy” Sunday to go Behind The Headlines on the Supreme Court of the United States ruling this week that police can use evidence against you gathered in illegal stops by police, and, a Baltimore judge acquitted the third police officer tried in the in-custody injury and death of Freddie Gray. This time, the police van driver, Officer Caesar Goodson was found not guilty on all charges. Goodson was charged with the most serious crimes of all officers charged in this lightening rod incident. Gray was the 25-year-old black man who died after suffering severe injuries which included a severed spine and neck. Gray’s death was the catalyst that sparked several days of civil unrest in Baltimore and prompted mass protest in other urban cities across the nation.
Indianapolis power-house legal husband and wife duo, Attorney KiKi Gaither of the Law Office of KiKi Gaither and Judge Geoffrey Gaither, Magistrate, Marion County Juvenile Superior Court spent some time with me to provide legal analysis of the result of this SCOTUS ruling and third trial, why each turned out the way they did, and what we can expect next.
Will they agree or will they stand on opposite ends of the gavel?
