15 Feb Jury acquits Baltimore school police officer in student assault caught on tape

Jurors took about 30 minutes Wednesday to acquit a Baltimore school police officer on charges that she was complicit in the slapping of a student that was caught on tape.

Officer Saverna Bias, 53, was found not guilty of second-degree assault and misconduct in office for the March 2016 incident at the REACH Partnership School, in which another officer was captured on cell phone video striking a then-16-year-old student who the officers believed to be trespassing.
