Two Baltimore police officers pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges leveled against them in connection with an alleged assault during an arrest.
Sgt. Marinos N. Gialamas, 40, and Officer Anthony Williams, 37, are accused of assaulting Antoine Douglas Green at the home of Williams's girlfriend in October, 2011 while Green was in custody. Last April, prosecutors dropped drug, assault and burglary charges filed against Green in connection with his arrest.
The two officers entered their pleas in a brief hearing at Baltimore City Circuit Court and are scheduled for trial in March. Catherine Flynn, Gialamas' attorney, said she is confident he will be exonerated when the evidence is heard.
"I'm very much looking forward to going to trial," she added.
Williams's attorney declined to comment.
