Marilyn Mosby Removed From The Case 
BHR Hollywood Reports.............The officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray are on a mission to remove Marilyn Mosby as the prosecutor in the case.

Attorneys for the six Baltimore cops asked a judge to dismiss the case or assign it to someone other than the city's top prosecutor, who they say has too many conflicts of interest to remain objective, reports.

The lawyers say at most an independent prosecutor should replace Mosby, who became a decorated hero after her swift move to indict the officers she says illegally arrested Gray and ignored his need for medical attention.

Mosby on May 1 said Freddie Gray’s death was ruled a homicide and announced she would seek charges against Garrett Miller, Alicia White, Edward Nero, Caesar Goodson Jr., Brian Rice and William Porter.

Gray was arrested on April 12 and died a week later. Mosby said the arrest was illegal.

The motion argues that Mosby should recuse herself for five reasons: It claims she and her husband, City Council member Nick Mosby, stand to gain politically and personally during the course of the case; she has “personal relationships” with potential witnesses; her office was involved with investigating the case; there is a pending civil lawsuit against Mosby’s office; and it also claims the lawyer for the Gray family is a “close friend” and financial supporter of Mosby.

“Rarely in the history of any criminal case has a prosecutor so directly maintained so many conflicts of interest,” the motion says.

Mosby responded last week to claims made by the police union that she had a conflict of interest in the case because of her husband’s political position.
