Officer Sentenced To 45 Days In Jail For Assaulting Man In Police Custody

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City police officer Anthony Williams was sentenced Wednesday for assaulting a man in police custody.

According to police, officers saw Antoine Green take part in a suspected drug transaction. When they approached him, he fled. Police say he broke into a home in the 2200-block of Prentiss Place. The owner of that home called 911 and her boyfriend, Officer Williams.

Police arrested Green and were going to take him to Central Booking when a sergeant at the scene asked for him to be returned to the home in Prentiss Place, where the assault took place.

A jury convicted Williams of second-degree assault and obstructing and hindering the internal affairs investigation. They also found the sergeant, Marinos Gialamas, guilty of misconduct.

Williams was sentenced to one year in prison with all but 45 days suspended. He will have 18 months of probation and 200 hours of community service.

Gialamas will be sentenced Friday.
