Brian Rice trial: Highest-ranking officer cleared in Freddie Gray death.


Baltimore police Lt. Brian Rice was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in connection with Freddie Gray's arrest and death, Judge Barry Williams ruled in a bench trial Monday.

Rice was the highest-ranking police officer charged in the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who suffered a broken neck in a police transport van on April 12, 2015.

The scrutiny isn't over for Rice. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake issued a statement saying that the lieutenant will face a departmental administrative review now that the trial is over.
"This has been a very difficult time for our city, and I thank the community for their patience during this time and ask their continued respect for the judicial process as we move forward," she said.
