The hung jury in December of William Porter's trial raises critical issues for the prosecution in trying the van driver, Caesar Goodson, for the death of Freddie Gray.
Caesar Goodson is the second of six officers scheduled for trial.
"You would not necessarily expect that the next jury will look at the evidence the same way that this jury has looked at it."
It's the first of the cases against six Baltimore police officers charged over Gray's death.

William Porter faces manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and reckless endangerment charges.
