In Freddie Gray case, officer awaiting retrial must take the stand against van driver, receives immunity for testimony

There is no precedent for the ruling of Baltimore circuit court judge Barry Williams.  The judge will allow William Porter, who currently is waiting for a new trial after his own ended in a mistrial, to take the stand against the van driver Caesar Goodson in his second degree murder trial.  Porter would be given immunity for his testimony in the Goodson trial, making it difficult for him to be prosecuted in his retrial this June 13.
