2016, a Baltimore judge said bike patrol officer Edward Nero is not guilty of all charges stemming from the arrest of Freddie Gray before his in-custody death. He was one of six officers facing charges. Nero was charged with arresting the 25-year-old Gray without justification. He was also accused of failing to secure Gray in a police van, where he suffered a fatal spinal injury. None of the police officers charged in the case were convicted of the hastily and politically motivated charges the Baltimore prosecutor filed.
