    Porter Testimony Expected On Day Three Of Goodson Trial

    Monday, June 13, 2016

    12:05 p.m.

    Officer William Porter remains on the stand at this hour, but attorneys have finished their first round of questioning.

    Porter answered questions from prosecutors for about an hour and 20 minutes, then cross examination from defense attorneys for about 20 minutes.

    Now both sides get to ask rebuttal questions..

    The testimony has focused on the police van's fourth stop, at Druid Hill and Dolphin Avenues, and the fifth stop on North Avenue.

    On both occasions Porter testified he asked Freddie Gray what’s up when he saw Gray on the floor of the van, and he said Gray help me up.

    At the Druid Hill Stop, Porter also testified that he told Goodson, Gray should be taken to the hospital since he could not get admitted to Central booking, and Goodson replied sure.

    Under cross examination though, Porter told defense attorney Matt Fraling that Goodson made no direct acknowledgement that Gray needed medical care.

    Also under cross examination, Porter pointed out that Gray seemed lethargic at both stops, but he spoke in a normal voice and showed no sign of medical distress.

    At pone point, under cross-examination, Porter said Gray uttered the "magic words" which is hospital.

    The prosecution objected to the use of that phrase and Judge Barry Williams ordered it stricken from the record.

    Although he is forced to testify for the state, at the start of his testimony Porter acknowledged he is suing Marilyn Mosby, and he met with Officer Caesar Goodson’s attorneys twice to discuss his testimony..

    Porter spoke in a clear authoritative voice.

    Twice, during the cross-examination, Porter went off the stand and demonstrated how he knelt over Gray in the van

    10:50 a.m

    Officer William Porter has been on the stand for about an hour.

    Although he is forced to testify for the state, at the start of his testimony he acknowledged he is suing Marilyn Mosby, and he met with Officer Caesar Goodson’s attorneys twice to discuss his testimony.

    Porter testified he asked Freddie Gray what’s up when the van stopped at Druid Hill Avenue and Dolphin Avenue and Gray said "help me up".

    The prosecutor noted that conflicted with what he told internal affairs officers in which he said hat Gray repeated asked for help.
    The defense objected, that led to a bench conference.

    Before that conference, Judge Barry Williams spotted one of the courtroom spectators reacting to the testimony, and he admonished everyone in the courtroom not to show any kind of emotional reaction to testimony, saying anyone who does would be removed from the courtroom.

    It was not clear what was the spectator's reaction.

    Porter also testified that he told Goodson, Gray should be taken to the hospital since he could not get admitted to Central Booking, and Goodson replied sure.

    Porter later testified he was called to North Avenue and left the scene,.

    That North Avenue scene turned out to be the van's fifth stop.

    9:10 a.m.

    Officer William Porter was spotted in a courthouse hallway shaking hands with Officer Caesar Goodson.

    Porter is expected to testify for the state as a material witness at Goodson's second degree murder trial.

    Porter is being offered limited immunity to describe what happened at the van stop at Druid Hill and Dolphin Street.

    This is also risky witness for the state, because in her closing arguments at Porter’s trial in December, Prosecutor Janice Bledsoe described Porter as a liar. Goodson's defense is likely to raise that issue in cross examination.

    Today is also the deadline Judge Barry Williams set for prosecutors to turn over evidence to the defense in this and the remaining Gray cases. We may not find out in open court if Schatzow and the other prosecutors met that deadline.

    12:05 a.m.It is day three of the second degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, who is charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

    Sources tell WBAL NewsRadio 1090, Officer William Porter, who faces a retrial in September, will testify for the state today, as ordered by the Maryland Court of Appeals.

    Porter is considered a material witness and will detail the police van’s fourth stop at Dolphin Street and Druid Hill Avenue.

    That’s where Porter checked on Freddie Gray, and told Goodson he needed medical attention, but prosecutors allege Goodson did nothing.

    Today is also the deadline Judge Barry Williams set for prosecutors to turn over evidence to the defense in this and the remaining Gray cases.

    Porter Wraps Up Testimony On Third Day Of Goodson Trial
    Monday, June 13, 2016

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    6:20 p.m.

    Court wrapped up for the day in the Officer Caesar Goodson trial.

    Goodson is the police van driver charged with second degree murder in the death of Freddie Gray.

    Before Judge Barry Williams recessed the proceedings at 6:15 p.m., he announced that the prosecution has turned over additional evidence to the defense.

    The judge had given prosecutors today as a deadline, after admonishing prosecutors on Thursday for failing to disclose an interview prosecutors did in May of last year, with Donta Allen, the second prisoner who rode in the van with Freddie Gray.

    The judge says defense lawyers can review the evidence, and decide what motions if any, they want to file.

    Judge Williams said the evidence itself will not be made public unless it is introduced in court.

    When court resumes Tuesday morning, there will be more testimony from Police Detective Michael Boyd. He is a member of the FIT team (Force Investigations) which investigated Gray's arrest and death.

    Boyd showed the judge closed circuit video of Goodson's van traveling the route on April 12, 2015, from the time of his arrest to the time it arrived at the Western District.

    The judge saw video of the van's third stop at North Freemont & Mosher Street..

    Before that stop, Goodson's van is seen making a wide turn onto North Freemont.

    Prosecutors had alleged this was part of the alleged "rough ride" that caused Gray's injuries.

    According to prosecutors at this van stop, only Goodson checked on Gray.

    The video shows the van stopping, Goodson, walking out to the back of the van. He looks into a window, and then proceeds to go back to the driver's side and then drive away.

    From the video's angle, it;'s not possible to determine if Goodson opened the back of the door of the van to check on Gray.

    Goodson was the only one of the six officers who did not give an interview to police investigators.

    Detective Boyd's testimony followed that of neurosurgeon and medical expert Dr. Morris Soriano, and the testimony of accused Officer William Porter.

    As the trial was ending for the day, about a dozen protesters calling for "Justice for Freddie Gray" demonstrated outside of the courthouse.

    Court will resume at 9:30 Tuesday morning.


    3:00 p.m.

    Testimony resumed this afternoon at the second degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, the police van driver charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

    The afternoon's first witness was Dr. Morris Marc Soriano, a neurosurgeon from Rockford, Illinois, who testified as an expert witness.

    Soriano was also called as an expert witness in the December trial of Officer William Porter.

    Soriano described Freddie Gray's injuries similar to diving accident injuries, where the head moves forward suddenly fracturing the spinal cord.

    Sorianoa testified that there was no way Gray could have caused those injuries himself by banging his head against tthe wall of the van.

    Sorianoa said Gray would not have suffered his injuries had he been placed in a seat belt.

    The doctor also said Gray would have benefited from prompt medical attention.

    Sorianao also noted that at the van's fourth stop, Druid Hill and Dolphin Avenues, where Officer Porter checked on Gray, it was possible for Gray to be speaking and his brain was fully functioning,, because the swelling in his spinal cord had not reached the brain.

    Soriano's testimony followed that of Porter. Defense attorneys had raised objections over his qualifications, but ultimately accepted him as an expert witness. The judge also overruled several defense objections to Soriano's questioning.

    The proceedings were interrupted briefly at around 2:30 when Judge Barry Williams conferred with sheriff's deputies, his clerks and some of the lawyers. The proceedings resumed after that.


    12:20 p.m.

    Officer William Porter has wrapped up his testimony at the second-degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, the police van driver who transported Freddie Gray.

    Goodson, who faces his own retrial in September, was on the stand for about two hours today.

    The testimony has focused on the police van's fourth stop, at Druid Hill and Dolphin avenues, and the fifth stop on North Avenue.

    On both occasions, Porter testified he asked Freddie Gray "What’s up?" when he saw Gray on the floor of the van, and he said Gray asked for help up.

    At the Druid Hill stop, Porter also testified that he told Goodson, Gray should be taken to the hospital since he could not get admitted to Central Booking, and Goodson replied sure. Porter also said it was his understanding that Goodson had official custody of Gray, and was responsible for his safety.

    "At no time did I take custody of Mr. Gray," Porter told prosecutors.

    Porter testified both at the North Avenue stop, and the van's last stop, the Western District police station, Gray's position in the van as "exaggerated" with Gray leaning against the bench in the van.

    Prosecutors asked if Porter had spoken to a medic at that stop.

    Porter said he could not recall, but when he was presented with a transcript of his interview with internal affairs detectives, Porter repeated what he told them, that "Gray had been banging around the van and was unconscious."

    Under cross-examination though, Porter told defense attorney Matt Fraling that Goodson made no direct acknowledgement that Gray needed medical care.

    Also under cross-examination, Porter pointed out that Gray seemed lethargic at both stops, but he spoke in a normal voice and showed no sign of medical distress.

    At one point, under cross-examination, Porter said Gray uttered the "magic words" which is "hospital."

    The prosecution objected to the use of that phrase "magic words," and Judge Barry Williams ordered it stricken from the record.

    Also under cross-examination, Porter testified at the van stops he noticed Gray was breathing normally.

    He also said that when Gray asked for help getting onto the bench, Porter said he only assisted, Gray, because Porter said he could not lift Gray up on his own.

    Although he is forced to testify for the state, at the start of his testimony Porter acknowledged he is suing State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, and that he met with Officer Caesar Goodson’s attorneys twice to discuss his testimony..

    Porter spoke in a clear authoritative voice.

    Twice, during the cross-examination, Porter went off the stand and demonstrated how he knelt over Gray in the van.

    Before the court proceedings began this morning, Porter was spotted in a courthouse hallway shaking hands with Goodson.

    With Porter's testimony complete, court has recessed until 1:30 p.m.

    Goodson Trial Day Four: Prosecutors To Outline "Rough Ride" Case
    Tuesday, June 14, 2016

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    11:50 a.m. June 14, 2016

    Police Detective Michael Boyd testified largely about the police van's fifth stop at Pennsylvania and North avenues. Surveillance vdeo showed Goodson and the other five officers later charged in Gray's death outside the van.

    Surveillance video shows the van going down North avenue, but it didn't appear to be speeding at the time. Officers are seen looking into the van's open door, but Donta Allen was not shown being loaded in. Asked if he interviewed Allen, Boyd said he had and that Allen was cooperative.

    A later witness, police serologist Virginia Cates, said she tested blood samples from inside in the van and confirmed the blood to have been that of Gray.


    9:00 a.m.Today 6/14/2016

    Officer Caesar Goodson arrived at Courthouse East just before 9 a.m. for the fourth day of his second degree murder trial in connection with the death of Freddie Gray.

    Goodson walked in the courthouse at a side entrance surrounded by sheriff's deputies.

    The trial is entering its fourth day.

    The one thing that could put a halt to the proceedings today is any motion the defense may file based on new evidence the prosecution turned over before court adjourned last night.

    Judge Barry Williams had given prosecutor Michael Schatzow a deadline to turn over the evidence after admonishing prosecutors for failing to notify the defense of an interview they did last year with Donta Allen, the second man loaded into the van with Freddie Gray.

    Defense motions could include asking for the case to be dismissed. Judge Williams rejected that motion last week, but he could reconsider it today.

    Last night, Judge Williams told defense attorneys that he would entertain whatever motions they file based on the evidence.

    Court resumes at 930.

    7:30 a.m.

    It is day four of the second degree murder trial of Officer Caesar Goodson, the Baltimore City Police van driver charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

    Prosecutors apparently met a deadline set by the judge.

    Before court adjourned just after 6:15 last night, Judge Barry Williams announced prosecutors met his deadline for handing over evidence to the defense.

    That deadline was set after Judge Williams admonished prosecutors for failing to disclose an interview they did with Donta Allen, the second man who rode in the van with Gray.

    The judge said defense attorneys should review the evidence, and file whatever motions they’d like.

    The evidence won’t be made public, unless it is introduced in court.

    It is not known if the defesne has filed any motions as of this morning, and it is not clear when or if Judge Williams will hold a hearing on those motions.

    Meantime, more testimony is expected today from a police detective who investigated Gray’s death..

    Baltimore City Police Detective Michael Boyd began his testimony after 5 p.m. Monday.

    He’s a member of the police department’s FIT (Force Investigation Team) team that investigated Freddie Gray’s death.

    Goodson was the only accused officer who did not talk to investigators.

    Boyd showed the video of the trip Goodson’s van made on the day of Gray’s arrest.

    The video shows Goodson’s van making a wide turn at the intersection of North Freemont and Mosher Street, before Goodson stops the van, goes around back, looks inside without opening the door, and then drives away.

    The van does not appear to be speeding in the video.

    It is along that part of the trip where prosecutors believe Gray was injured.

    Boyd is the 15th prosecution witness presented since Thursday afternoon. It is not clear if prosecutors will wrap up their case today.

    In court filings last year, prosecutors had said it would take five days to present their case at Goodson's trial.




    6:20 p.m. 6/13/2016

    Court wrapped up for the day in the Officer Caesar Goodson trial.

    Goodson is the police van driver charged with second degree murder in the death of Freddie Gray.

    Before Judge Barry Williams recessed the proceedings at 6:15 p.m., he announced that the prosecution has turned over additional evidence to the defense.

    The judge had given prosecutors today as a deadline, after admonishing prosecutors on Thursday for failing to disclose an interview prosecutors did in May of last year, with Donta Allen, the second prisoner who rode in the van with Freddie Gray.

    The judge says defense lawyers can review the evidence, and decide what motions if any, they want to file.

    Judge Williams said the evidence itself will not be made public unless it is introduced in court.

    When court resumes Tuesday morning, there will be more testimony from Police Detective Michael Boyd. He is a member of the FIT team (Force Investigations) which investigated Gray's arrest and death.

    Boyd showed the judge closed circuit video of Goodson's van traveling the route on April 12, 2015, from the time of his arrest to the time it arrived at the Western District.

    The judge saw video of the van's third stop at North Freemont & Mosher Street..

    Before that stop, Goodson's van is seen making a wide turn onto North Freemont.

    Prosecutors had alleged this was part of the alleged "rough ride" that caused Gray's injuries.

    According to prosecutors at this van stop, only Goodson checked on Gray.

    The video shows the van stopping, Goodson, walking out to the back of the van. He looks into a window, and then proceeds to go back to the driver's side and then drive away.

    From the video's angle, it;'s not possible to determine if Goodson opened the back of the door of the van to check on Gray.

    Goodson was the only one of the six officers who did not give an interview to police investigators.

    Detective Boyd's testimony followed that of neurosurgeon and medical expert Dr. Morris Soriano, and the testimony of accused Officer William Porter.

    As the trial was ending for the day, about a dozen protesters calling for "Justice for Freddie Gray" demonstrated outside of the courthouse.

    Court will resume at 9:30 Tuesday morning.

    Goodson Trial Day Four: Tuesday, June 14, 2016
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    6:10 p.m.

    The second degree murder trial of Baltimore City Police van driver Caesar Goodson has wrapped up for the day.

    Judge Barry Williams recessed proceedings just before 6 p.m.

    After the state presented 20 witnesses over four days, prosecutors did not rest their case, but both sides agreed to let the defense present two expert witnesses.

    Former Washington DC Medical examiner, now consultant Doctor Jonathan Arden testified for the defense.

    Arden disagreed with the findings of Gray’s autopsy testifying Gray’s manner of death was not homicide, but accidental.

    He also says Gray’s fatal injuries occurred later in the van trip than prosecutor allege. Arden believes the fatal injuries occurred right before the van arrived at its final stop, the Western District police station.

    He said only at that time did Gray display all of the symptoms of a severe spinal cord injury, not breathing, paralysis and incontinence Arden’s credentials came under attack by prosecutors, since Arden resigned as DC Medical examiner in 2003 amidst an allegation of gross mismanagement and sexual harassment in his office.

    Judge Williams though allowed Arden to testify.

    The second defense witness was York, Pennsylvania neurosurgeon Dr. Joel Winer, who agreed with Arden that Gray's injuries occurred right before the last van stop.

    Winer said when the van arrived at the police station Gray displayed all of the symptoms of his injury including, loss of breathing, complete paralysis and loss of bowel and bladder function.

    It is not clear why the defense was allowed to present its witnesses, before the state wrapped up its case. However, all parties agreed to allow the testimony.

    The defense did not enter any motions today based on the evidence prosecutors turned over on Monday.

    Prosecutors were under a Monday deadline to turn over the evidence, after Judge Williams admonished prosecutors last week for failing to let the defense know about a meeting they had last year with Donta Allen, the seocnd man loaded into the van with Freddie Gray.

    Court resumes Wednesday morning at 9:30



    4:10 p.m.

    Prosecutors have not rested their case at the second degree murder trial of Baltimore City Police van driver Caesar Goodson, who is charged in the death of Freddie Gray.

    However, the defense was allowed to present their first witness this afternoon.

    Both sides agreed to allow Arden's testimony Tuesday afternoon, though it is not clear why.

    Arden is the former medical examiner of Washington DC and he disagreed with the findings of Assistant Maryland Medical Examiner Carol Allan, who concluded Gray's manner of death was homicide.

    Arden says Freddie Gray’s manner of death was not homicide, but accidental.

    He also says Gray’s fatal injuries occurred later in the van trip between the stop in Penn North and the final stop at the Western District Police station.

    He said only at that time did Gray display all of the symptoms of a severe spinal cord injury, not breathing, paralysis and incontinence.

    He also said a seat belt would not have prevented the injury, and earlier medical attention was not needed.

    Under cross examination, from prosecutors Arden admitted a seat belt might have prevented the injury.

    He also refuted prosecutor’s argument that because Gray hadn’t changed positions in the van in the last two stops, he could have been injured sooner.

    Arden’s credentials came under attack by prosecutors, since Arden resigned as DC Medical examiner in 2003, amidst an allegation of gross mismanagement and sexual harassment in his office.

    Prosecutor Michael Schatzow wanted Arden disqualified as an expert witness.

    Judge Barry Williams though allowed Arden to testify.

    Arden finished his testimony in about 90 minutes.

    More prosecution witnesses are expected this afternoon.,





    2:48 p.m.

    Due to availability and following a bench conference, a defense witness testified Tuesday afternoon in the trial of Officer Caesar Goodson.

    Though the state has not yet rested, forensic pathologist Jonathan Arden took the stand for the defense.

    Arden is a former chief medical examiner in Washington, and resigned in 2003 after he was suspended in a probe of alleged mismanagement, The Washington Times reported at the time. Allegations against Arden included sexual harassment, grounds Michael Schatzow cited to object to Arden being deemed an expert witness. Judge Barry Williams overruled that objection.






    1:06 p.m.

    As the second degree murder trial of Baltimore City Police Officer Caesar Goodson broke for lunch, the prosecution had presented 20 witnesses.

    The last witness to testify before the lunch break was Stacey Lyles-Foster, Acting Warden for the state's Central Booking Intake facility, where those arrested are housed and await trial.

    She testified about the procedure for evaluating inmates, and noted if there was a medical problem, the police officer bringing the inmate would be required to take the inmate to the hospital, stay with them until they are treated, and then return them to Central Booking.

    At the time of Gray’s arrest in April, 2015, Lyles-Foster was the assistant warden.

    She testified in 2014, out of 42,852 inmates brought to Central Booking, 612 (1.43%) were rejected, and sent to the hospital.

    Lyles-Foster testified that In 2015, out of 32,782 inmates brought to Central Booking, 619 inmates (1.88%) were rejected and sent to the hospital.

    Under cross examination, the warden said Freddie Gray had been rejected once in December of 2104, as he was treated for symptoms of a possible overdose.

    Lyles-Foster was asked by defense attorney Andrew Graham about the decline in the number of inmates brought to Central Booking between 2014 and 2015.

    She testified that the decline was due to a drop in the number of people arrested by police.

    Critics have charged Baltimore City Police have arrested fewer suspects because of the Freddie Gray case.

    Earlier, the police detective who inspected police vans for seat belts in 2014 testified.

    Under cross examination, Detective Edward Bailey testified that Officer Caesar Goodson was not among the officers he questioned.

    The Baltimore City Police Department issued an order days before Gray's arrest ;last year, requiring any prisoner loaded in transport vans to be placed in a seat belt.

    In earlier testimony, a police official testified that Goodson was made aware of the police in October, 2014, six months before the policy took effect.

    Officer Caesar Goodson trial day 5: What you need to know

    June 15, 2016

    What's expected to happen today:

    The trial of Baltimore police Officer [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Jr. will continue at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. The prosecution is expected to call more witnesses, including Neill Franklin. The retired Baltimore officer and state trooper will be called upon as an expert witness on "retaliatory prisoner transportation practices," prosecutors have previously said.

    What happened Tuesday?

    » Detective Michael Boyd reconstructed the route of the police van carrying [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] by using surveillance footage and his own memory. He told Goodson’s attorney that he did not see any evidence that Goodson made abrupt stops, starts or turns while transporting Gray.

    » Six witnesses — including Boyd — took the stand for the prosecution Tuesday. Crime lab technician Thomas Wisner, serologist Virginia Cates and DNA analyst Thomas Hebert were called to establish that Gray's blood was found in the back of the van.

    » Stacey Lyles-Foster, the acting warden of the Central Booking and Intake Facility in Baltimore, testified that detainees brought to the facility by police van are given quick medical assessments, and rejected if medical personnel there do not believe the detainee would be able to "withstand" the 24-hour booking process before receiving care. She testified that 612 detainees were rejected in 2014 of 42,852 brought to the facility. In 2015, she said, 619 of 32,782 individuals were rejected. On cross examination, Lyles-Foster said Gray had been rejected at the facility for medical reasons in December 2014. She said medical personnel believed he was having a possible overdose.
