Freddie Gray's Autopsy, Youth Jail for Juveniles Charged as Adults

A prominent minister orchestrated a rush-hour traffic jam last month to protest plans for a $30 million youth jail in Baltimore. Today we hear from two of Gov. Larry Hogan’s cabinet secretaries about justice and corrections for the state’s juvenile offenders. But first, the Freddie Gray autopsy. According to the Baltimore Sun, the state medical examiner concluded that Gray’s death was the result of a “high energy” impact injury sustained inside the police van. One of the nation’s leading experts in forensic pathology, Dr. Vincent DiMaio, tells what he thinks of that conclusion, and we’ll get reaction from criminal defense expert Amy Dillard. Was Gray’s death a homicide or accident? Should juveniles be charged as adults? Two questions to ponder in the hour ahead.
