MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Bails for the officers had been set at $250,000-$350,000.
The officers involved in the case denied using any force against Gray during or after the arrest. However, the video recorded by witnesses shows that Gray had been dragged to the police van while screaming in pain.
On Friday, the State’s Attorney for the city of Baltimore Marilyn Mosby announced that Gray’s death was ruled as a homicide, and criminal charges have been filed against six Baltimore police officers involved in the Gray’s arrest.
One of the officers faces counts of second-degree depraved-heart murder and involuntary manslaughter, punishable by up to 30 years in jail. Others face charges that could bring over 10 years in prison.
The preliminary hearing will be held on May 27, according to the CNN citing court documents.
Gray’s death triggered a wave of mass protests in Baltimore against police brutality and racism, prompting the Maryland's governor to announce a state of emergency.
