Baltimore Police Van Driver, Now Acquitted, to Get Back Pay

BALTIMORE (AP)- The driver of the Baltimore police van where a black man's neck was broken will get nearly $88,000 in back pay.
    
Officer Caesar Goodson was suspended without pay after being charged with felonies in Freddie Gray's death.
    
Now that he's been found not guilty, the Board of Estimates is set Wednesday to authorize a payment of $87,705. Goodson remains suspended pending an administrative review.
    
Meanwhile, lawyers for Lt. Brian Rice asked a judge Tuesday to admit testimony from Officer William Porter's mistrial into evidence.
    
Attorney Michael Belsky said prosecutors deliberately didn't ask Porter on Monday about his role at the stops where Gray was arrested and Rice loaded him back in the van, depriving the defense of an opportunity to cross-examine him.
