Activist Fined $500 for Protesting No Conviction in Freddie Gray Case

HeadlineJul 19, 2016

Meanwhile, a judge has found a Baltimore activist guilty of failing to obey an order from law enforcement during a protest last year. Police arrested Kwame Rose at a protest in December after a jury failed to convict police officer William Porter, the first of six officers to go on trial in the death of Freddie Gray. Kwame Rose received a fine of $500, although the judge did not sentence him to a year of probation, which is what the state prosecutor was asking for. We’ll speak with Kwame Rose later in the broadcast.
