EXCLUSIVE: Father of Baltimore Cop Cleared in Freddie Gray Case Speaks Out
Says Marilyn Mosby must be 'held accountable' for malicious prosecution.
The father of one of the Baltimore police officers involved in the Freddie Gray case spoke exclusively to Martha MacCallum.
Edward Nero Sr., whose son Edward was eventually acquitted of wrongdoing, said his son and others are seeking litigation for malicious prosecution against the city.
Nero said that he hopes Baltimore City State Attorney Marilyn Mosby will be "held accountable" for allegedly wrongfully prosecuting his son.
He said that the day of the Gray incident, he was at his home in Florida and noticed reports of an "uprising" in Baltimore after some police activity.
"The words he used were very upsetting to me," Nero said of the subsequent phone call he had with his son, who told him he was one of the officers involved.
Nero said the city was "looking to hang" his son and the other officers for Gray's death.
He said his son is glad to finally resume work at the barracks but said Nero Jr. will never be allowed to work a street beat because of the incident.
"Some person out there [might] like to even it up," he said.
