Monday [June 22], Williams received the officers’ written from of not guilty pleas without the their actual appearances. Each of the Baltimore officers requested a jury trial, which has been set for October 13 by administrative Judge W. Michel Pierson. September 2 is when motion hearings will take place.

“We look forward to trying this case before Judge Williams,” Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby said in a statement. “The defendants have all entered not guilty pleas, which is their right,” she adds before reminding us all of the ‘innocent, until proven guilty’ spill.

Back in April, Gray suffered from a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody, which the defendants have been accused of inflicting.

Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr. is charged with second-degree depraved-heart murder. Sgt. Alicia D. White, Lt. Brian W. Rice and Officer William G. Porter are charged with manslaughter. Officers Edward M. Nero and Garrett E. Miller face lesser charges, including second-degree assault.
