Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby has filed a motion to block the release of Freddie Gray’s autopsy while prosecuting the six police officers involved in his death, the Baltimore Sun reports.
Mosby does not want to release the autopsy results or other “sensitive” documents because she said she has “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.”
Attorney Ivan Bates, who is representing Sgt. Alicia White, argues that Mosby is trying to hide something in the autopsy report in efforts to make sure his client “does not get a fair trial.”
“Mrs. Mosby is the one who did an announcement discussing what she said the evidence was in a nationally televised speech,” said Bates, who represents . “Now that it is time to turn over the evidence, to ask for a protective order is beyond disingenuous.”
Mosby is also seeking a gag order to prevent those involved from discussing the case in public.
