Warren Alperstein Offers Legal Analysis on Officer Nero’s Trial

Alperstein & Diener attorney, Warren S. Alperstein, spoke with WBAL Radio 1090 regarding Officer Nero and the prosecution’s efforts to prove that he assaulted Freddie Gray during what they believe was an illegal arrest. Many law professors and defense attorneys – with no connection to the case – feel that the prosecution has not proved their case.

Mr. Alperstein mentions to WBAL that in order to prove assault, the prosecution must prove there was an “offensive touching.” Mr. Alperstein bases his comments on a U.S. Supreme Court decision which upheld the constitutionality of a suspect chase.
