In the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray in April 2015, as protesters took to the streets and the city of Baltimore broke out into chaos, the newly-elected state's attorney for the Charm City, Marilyn Mosby, became the voice of a new hope of justice.

"To the people of Baltimore and the demonstrators across America, I heard your call for no justice, no peace. Your peace is sincerely needed as I work to deliver justice for this young man," Mosby said on May 1st, 2015.

Mosby announced charges against all six officers said to be involved in Gray's death. But a year and a half later, after three acquittals, and the three remaining charges dropped, that promise of justice has fallen flat.

Wil Hylton, a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine, chronicled the very personal saga of Mosby and her husband Nick is chronicled in the article, "Balitmore vs. Marilyn Mosby." It's a story that touches everything from centuries old racism in Baltimore, to the Mosby's marriage.
