BALTIMORE (AP) - A police officer is set to be disciplined after Baltimore’s first publicly-held misconduct hearing.

The Baltimore Sun reports (http://bsun.md/2dqeo27 ) that Monday’s hearing for Officer Alice Carson-Johnson was the first held in the open under a new law that was part of a reform package.

The hearing stemmed from a prosecutor’s complaint that that Carson-Johnson missed a meeting to discuss training of officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray, a black man injured in a police van. Lawyer Michael Davey says the meeting was rescheduled for the next business day. A three-member police panel found Carson-Johnson guilty of misconduct.

Officers may appeal to internal trial boards. The trial board hasn’t recommended punishment, which ranges from a reprimand letter to firing. Commissioner Kevin Davis’ decision won’t be conveyed to the public.
