[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosley has faced intense criticism since making the decision, only hours after receiving the official police report, to charge the 6 arresting officers in the death of Freddie Gray. Even renowned liberal law professor Alan Dershowitz has said that Mosley overreached and does not have the evidence, based upon the facts known, to convict based upon the charges ranging to second degree murder with a depraved heart to assault. Now, Mosley will no doubt be subject to even more criticism after it was learned that erroneous identifying information was filed with the Baltimore Police Department and used to charge and book the officers.
[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]The Baltimore Sun reported that they were among those news agencies who contacted the wrong people when trying to contact Sgt. Alicia White and Lt. Brian Rice. As it turns out, prosecutors entered the wrong information thereby subjecting innocent people to a barrage of phone calls from news agencies and bail bondsmen, as well as the stress that comes with people thinking they are police accused of murder.
One person who was subject to this was elementary cafeteria worker Alicia White, whose personal information was used when Mosley and her team filed charges against Sgt. Alicia White.
“The middle initial was off. Her address, her height, her weight, her driver’s license number – all of the information was my client’s information,” said Jeremy Eldridge, an attorney who says he has been hired by the resident.
“Her life has been a living hell the past four days,” he said.
An attorney for Lt. Brian Rice said his client’s information was also entered incorrectly when prosecutors filed charges, but declined further comment.
On Friday evening, Tammy and Brian Rice of Brunswick, Md. said they were receiving multiple calls from reporters looking for the lieutenant. Brian Rice of Brunswick is a plumber, they said.
The Baltimore Sheriff’s Office, which assisted the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office in charging the officers, declined to comment and referred questions to prosecutors, who could not immediately be reached.
Anyone who thinks that Mosley, who made the decision on what has been described as overreaching charges against the officers, didn’t rush to judgment need only look at the fact that the identities of different people with the same name were used to book file the charges against the officers. And these officers, and the judicial system, are supposed to trust this woman’s ability to do her job well and according to the law?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
