This could be a huge blow to the prosecution of six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray. Defense attorneys allege prosecutors hid evidence regarding Freddie Gray's history of faking injuries at the hands of the police.
What I read out of this report is that the defense attorneys have somebody within the police that will personally testify they were told by prosecutors not to include certain information about Gray in their reports. If true, this is a serious case of prosecutorial misconduct. The law states that the defense is entitled to any exculpatory information that would benefit their client. In federal law, this is contained in the Brady Rule. It is part of discovery. Under discovery, the defense is entitled to know all of the government's case against their client(s) and any exculpatory information. If there is evidence of Gray having a history of injuring himself while in police custody, that could devastate the prosecution's case. If there is someone within the police who will testify to being told by a prosecutor not "to do the defense's work for them", that pretty much ends the case. If true, it would also result in prosecution against whomever was involved.
