(Newser) – Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's year of "dogged fighting," as the Baltimore Sun puts it, has ended with a score of 0 of 6. The three officers still to stand trial in the death of Freddie Gray on Wednesday saw all charges against them dropped. Three of the six officers had already been acquitted, and they had faced more serious charges than the remaining three; prosecutors determined it was unlikely that the result in these cases would be any different.

Judge Barry G. Williams had acquitted Officers Edward Nero and Caesar Goodson and Lt. Brian Rice over the last three months; Goodson was the van driver, and Rice had the highest rank of the six. The jury deadlocked in the case of Officer William Porter and a mistrial was declared. (Read more Freddie Gray stories.)
