Caesar Goodson was with Freddie Gray for every second of his 45-minute trip to the Western District police station, where Gray arrived critically injured and unresponsive.Goodson, they say, bears the most responsibility because as the wagon driver, Gray was technically in his custody.Prosecutors have revealed little about the case they plan to present against Goodson, who is also black, but in a pretrial hearing last week they said they would call a witness who specializes in "retaliatory prisoner transport practices," indicating they intend to bring up the possibility that Gray received a "rough ride" in the van.Prosecutors' plans were complicated this week when Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams ruled that Porter must testify as a state's witness against Goodson, despite Porter's claim that he has a right not to incriminate himself.
