Freddie Gray's death: Six officers and the charges they face

Six officers involved in Freddie Gray's arrest and transport now face criminal charges related to his death. State's Atty. Marilyn J. Mosby said the officers repeatedly failed to get Gray medical treatment after his arrest and did not buckle him up inside the police transport van, contrary to a Police Department order. If convicted, the maximum punishment is listed after the charge.

Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr.

Goodson Jr., 45, drove the van that transported Gray from the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood where he was arrested to the medical facility where he died. He faces the most serious charge of all the officers, second-degree "depraved heart" murder, meaning he acted with "reckless and wanton unconcern" to Gray's well-being. He is charged with:

Officer William G. Porter

Porter, 25, allegedly failed to request medical attention for Gray or place him in a seat belt after he had slumped to the van's floor. Porter had been a police officer for just two years.

Lt. Brian W. Rice

Rice, 41, is the most senior officer to face charges in Gray's death. He was on bike patrol in West Baltimore and initiated the pursuit on April 12.

Officer Edward M. Nero

Gray surrendered to Nero, 29, and Officer Garrett E. Miller. Prosecutors contend Nero was one of the officers who placed Gray in the transport van and later placed him in leg irons. Nero also allegedly failed to put Gray in a seat belt.

Officer Garrett E. Miller

Gray surrendered to Miller, 26, and Nero. Prosecutors contend Miller, along with Nero, placed Gray in the transport van and later placed him in leg irons. Miller also allegedly failed to put Gray in a seat belt.

Sgt. Alicia D. White

White, 30, allegedly found Gray unresponsive when the van stopped to pick up a second prisoner. She failed to call for medical aid, prosecutors contend.
