BALTIMORE (AP) - Lawyers for a police officer facing trial in the death of Freddie Gray are asking that the jury be sequestered.
Joseph Murtha and Gary Proctor represent Officer William Porter. They filed the motion last week in Baltimore Circuit Court. Porter is charged with manslaughter and other offenses. His trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 30.
The motion asks that during sequestration, the jurors' television viewing be controlled, their cellphones taken away, and all correspondence, calls and visits with family and friends be monitored by sheriff's deputies.
