BALTIMORE – A woman whose address was listed in public court records as that of a police officer charged in the Freddie Gray case has been harassed by phone calls from bail bondsmen and visits from journalists to her home, her lawyer said Monday.
Alicia White is afraid to walk her dog and has deactivated her social media accounts, her attorney, Jeremy Eldridge, said in a phone interview on Monday.
Eldridge said his client has the same name, but isn't Sgt. Alicia White, who was charged Friday with involuntary manslaughter and other offenses in Gray's death.
The Associated Press was among the news organizations that sent a reporter to White's address on Friday, based on the erroneous documents.
The court records have been corrected, but Eldridge said White tried to reach the state's attorney's office through Facebook over the weekend, and still has not received a response.
The spokeswoman for State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby did not respond to voicemails and emails seeking comment.
White is a cafeteria manager for a city school, her lawyer said, and "people have been bothering her late at night, saying you have a warrant for your arrest." White is experiencing some stress-related health issues, he said.
Eldridge wants police protection for his client due to the currently tense environment in Baltimore following Gray's death last month. Gray died a week after his neck was broken while in police custody.
Eldridge said the mistake in the court documents indicates the investigation into Gray's death was "flawed and rushed."
