Officers, cleared in Freddie Gray case, to get back pay

24 August 2016, 09:36

Baltimore — Two Baltimore police officers are getting back pay after being cleared of criminal charges in the death of a young black man whose neck was broken in a police van.

Sergeant Alicia White and Officer William Porter will receive $96 855 and $70 523 respectively after being suspended without pay after being charged with manslaughter, assault and other charges in the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray.

White and Porter were among six officers charged in Gray's death. Prosecutors dropped their cases after three other officers were acquitted.

The Board of Estimates previously approved nearly $127 000 in back pay for Lieutenant Brian Rice, the highest-ranking officer in the group, and about $87 700 for Officer Caesar Goodson, the van's driver.
