Big mouth Mosby wants everyone to zip it – that’s because she has no case. All of the legal experts have spoken out and said she has no case and over charged the six officers.
The gag order request came after a news conference Wednesday by Ivan Bates and Tony Garcia, the attorneys for Sgt. Alicia White.
“I can say emphatically when this trial is complete and all the evidence is laid bare, you’ll see perhaps justice wasn’t the only thing the state’s attorney was attempting to accomplish here,” Garcia said, according to CBS Baltimore. “And that perhaps you’ll see that there’s a fine line between fame and infamy.”

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore prosecutors are seeking a gag order as they pursue a criminal case against six city officers in the case of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who died a week after suffering a spinal injury while in police custody.
A court document that references the gag order, obtained by The Associated Press, is dated Wednesday. Assistant State’s Attorney Antonio Gioia wrote that the gag order motion was mailed to defense attorneys.
Rochelle Ritchie, a spokeswoman for State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, confirmed Friday the office is seeking a gag order. She declined to provide further details.

Larry Hogan to declare a state of emergency for the city.
