A Baltimore man's death after suffering injuries in the back of a police transport van last year touched off days of unrest in the city. 

The death of Freddie Gray also spurred Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby to file charges against six Baltimore Police officers involved in his arrest on April 12, 2015.

The case divided the city and led to a long legal battle between the State's Attorney's Office and those officers. 

Ultimately, a jury trial for Officer William Porter ended with a hung jury, and Officers Edward Nero, Caesar Goodson and Lt. Brian Rice were acquitted in bench trials.

Prosecutors then opted to drop charges against Officer Garrett Miller and Sgt. Alicia White, as well as Porter, who was awaiting his second trial.

All of the officers except for Goodson have filed defamation suits against Mosby, and the police department is still conducting internal reviews of the officers.

Now, one of those officers is speaking out for the first time.
