Alperstein & Diener attorney, Warren S. Alperstein, was quoted in the most recent WYPR article regarding the testimony of Officer Miller. Miller stated that he was the arresting officer and was the officer who placed handcuffs on Freddie Gray – not Officer Nero.
Officer Nero has been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office. The assault charges against Nero stem from his placement of the handcuffs on Gray. In response to Officer Miller’s testimony, Mr. Alperstein stated that “…Miller made it abundantly clear that Officer Nero had nothing to do with the initial detention.”
