If prosecutors want to limit media attention on the Freddie Gray case, State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby shouldn't have appeared in Vogue and Cosmopolitan, argue attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby is seeking a protective order to block the release of Freddie Gray's autopsy report and other "sensitive" documents related to the investigation of six officers allegedly responsible for Gray's death.
Prosecutors "have a duty to ensure a fair and impartial process for all parties involved" and "will not be baited into litigating this case through the media," Mosby told the Baltimore Sun.
The protective order would require all new court filings to be sealed and attorneys would have to keep evidence to themselves. In response to the protective order request, the officers' defense attorneys wrote:
"Issuance of a protective order is not necessary to preserve the integrity of the adversarial trial system. Rather, refraining from appearing in glossy magazines before the discovery process has begun may help abate the degree of media attention."
