Hearings in the trial of six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray begin Wednesday. Mayor Rawlings-Blake said a few days ago that city officials know that an unpopular ruling by the judge could be a flashpoint for protests, and the city is preparing for that possibility. The pre-trial motions will be argued before Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams in two sessions – on Wednesday, and a week from Thursday, Sept. 10. Among the defense motions is one to move the trial out of Baltimore, and some to remove Baltimore State’s Attorney from prosecuting the case. Judge Williams already has ruled on some motions: last week, he rejected a subpoena by the defense lawyers for the prosecutors to take the witness stand at Wednesday’s hearing. Here to catch us up on what’s at stake on Wednesday is David Jaros, a law professor at the University of Baltimore and Doug Colbert, law professor from University of Maryland.
