Report: Jurors Were 1 Vote Shy From Acquitting William Porter

The jury in the trial of Baltimore Police Officer William Porter was one vote shy of acquitting him of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.

Judge Barry G. Williams declared a mistrial because the jury deadlocked on all four charges last month.

Jurors were two votes away from convicting Porter of misconduct in office. They were more divided on charges of assault and reckless endangerment.

How the jury voted was not publicly disclosed. The judge also ruled to withhold jurors’ names.
