State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby, prosecutor for the Freddie Gray case, was denied her request that the defense be prohibited from publicly disclosing evidence.

According to The Baltimore Sun, Judge Barry G. Williams ruled Monday that the request was rejected without a hearing because "there simply is no basis in the assertions presented to the court for the broad and extraordinary relief sought in the motion."

Six Baltimore police officers are charged with a range of crimes from second-degree murder to misconduct. Baltimore resident Freddie Gray, 25, died in April after sustaining a spinal injury in police custody. The officers have pleaded not guilty, and the trial is expected to begin in October.

"[Mosby] accused the defense of publicizing this case," criminal defense attorney Ted Williams told Fox News.

"When you think about it, it was Mosby who went out front and held a press conference announcing the charges against these police officers. It was Ms. Mosby that attended a Prince concert — went on stage. It was Ms. Mosby that was found in Vogue magazine," he said, noting Mosby's recent media tour and high-profile appearances.

Williams concluded, "Ms. Mosby, you need to look in the mirror, because if you look in the mirror, you clearly cannot accuse the defense of leaking and publicizing this case like you have."

Mosby has drawn criticism since the announcement of the charges against the six officers, and has been accused of anti-cop bias.

Mosby received the official police report on Gray's death on April 30. She announced the charges the next day, on May 1 — a move many said was very hasty. She was also accused of overcharging the officers.
