A Baltimore activist has been found guilty of failing to obey an order from law enforcement while protesting the mistrial of a police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Twenty-one-year-old Darius Rosebrough, an activist also known as Kwame Rose, was found guilty Tuesday of the charge but found not guilty on three other related charges, including obstructing vehicle traffic. Rose was fined $500 and ordered to pay court fees.
Rose was arrested outside a downtown courthouse on Dec. 16 after a jury declared a mistrial in the case against police officer William Porter. Authorities said Rose unlawfully continued to talk on a megaphone while a deputy was giving orders on his own megaphone.
Rose’s attorney, Ken Ravenell, says he will be filing an appeal.
