Officers charged in Freddie Gray’s death will be tried in Baltimore

A change of venue can increase the likelihood that a jury will be impartial, according to Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University. Medwed also noted that if the officers were to be convicted outside of Baltimore, they would not be able to argue on appeal that they had not received a fair trial.
“On the other hand, the people of Baltimore are the victims, along with Freddie Gray, and have a compelling reason to hear the case; they are the injured community,” Medwed said.
