Bob Bianchi is a criminal defense attorney and former head county prosecutor, now in private practice, was asked to speak as a Fox News legal analyst about the second Baltimore police officer to stand trial in the death of Freddie Gray, now cleared of any wrongdoing. Officer Edward Nero acquitted on charges of assault and reckless endangerment in Gray’s death.
To have filed these charges within 19 days after only having just received the preliminary investigative report and only just receiving the autopsy report was a rush to judgment; it was a politicized case. This case should have gone slowly, I’s dotted, T’s crossed. It is no surprise to me that this was a not guilty verdict. And I think the idea that they are trying their weaker cases first and not being able to get a guilty verdict, it’s just amateur hour to me. She went in front of Vogue magazine and went out there and made these incendiary comments. You’re supposed to do it on facts and law, not the court of public opinion. To me it was outrageous”. Bianchi said.
