Law Professor: Freddie Gray Autopsy Is ‘Very, Very Helpful To The Defense’

The autopsy conducted on Freddie Gray helps the case of the six Baltimore police officers charged in the 25-year-old’s death, a law professor tells The Daily Caller.

John Banzhaf, a law professor at George Washington University, also says that the autopsy, a review of which was published Tuesday by The Baltimore Sun, indicates that Baltimore city state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby “downplayed” the medical examiner’s findings when she publicly announced charges against the officers on May 1.

“I think this autopsy report is very, very helpful to the defense in many ways,” Banzhaf told The Daily Caller in a phone interview.

“The report suggests that Gray may have contributed to his own death.”
