  • Can officers accused in Freddie Gray death get a fair trial in Baltimore?

    Yahoo! - 09/10/2015

    While some legal experts say that arguments for a change in trial location don’t make sense due to the case’s already nationwide public profile, some say the institution of a city-wide curfew during the riots brought the events particularly close to home for Baltimoreans.

    “It’s an interesting test case because every potential juror was directly affected due to the curfew, and that’s unusual,” Daniel Medwed, a professor at the Northeastern University School of Law told The Christian Science Monitor’s Henry Gass.

    “It certainly doesn’t mean that the defense deserves a change of venue,” he continues. “It just means that the defense has a stronger argument than is often the case.”
