Baltimore officer Edward Nero had been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and two counts of misconduct for allegedly helping to arrest Gray without probable cause and then acting negligently by also failing to make sure he was buckled in a police van. Nero was one of 6 cops involved, and opted against a jury trial, leaving his fate up to Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry G. Williams.

The judge said prosecutors didn’t show Nero acted unreasonably — and that the cop didn’t handcuff Gray. There are still four more officers to face their fate.
