Founding Partner Judge William H. “Billy” Murphy, Jr. is representing the family of Freddie Gray, the young man who died while in Baltimore Police custody. In this interview with CNN, Judge Murphy speaks about the information released by the police thus far, and how he hopes the city’s new chief prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, will proceed.
“She comes to the office with a belief in the integrity of these kinds of investigations. We have much more confidence in her than we have in the police, because there’s never been any level of confidence-nor should there be-in the police investigating themselves.”
Judge Murphy continues, “Bear in mind that Baltimore has a sorry history of police brutality. And an even sorrier history in terms of a governmental response to police brutality.”
The Gray family is currently awaiting the autopsy results and the outcome of the Baltimore Chief Prosecutor’s investigation.
Murphy, Falcon & Murphy wishes to express deepest condolences to the family of Freddie Gray, and our hope that the truth will finally be told.
