Porter is accused of police misconduct and manslaughter for failing to secure Gray in a police van and then ignoring Gray's pleas for help - a violation of the policy that was updated just weeks before.

Gray died of a broken neck after his ride in the van. His death led to protests, rioting and a curfew after people became angry over the police treatment of Gray.
