Officers appear in court

Makes Statement

All, six officers appear in court in Baltimore in front of Judge Williams, who will determine whether their still undisclosed statements will be allowed at trial. The officers who gave interviews want the statements thrown out, claiming were not read their rights. They say they feared they’d lose their jobs if they refused to talk to internal police investigators. They also saying the statements violate Maryland’s law enforcement officers’ bill of rights, which says police cannot be prosecuted for statements they were forced to give on the job. All officers except Goodson speak at length about the ride.
