This afternoon Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Pamela J. White reached a verdict in the trial of the Werdesheim brothers, whose trial for the assault of an African American teenager in their predominantly Orthodox Jewish neighborhood has highlighted tension between the two communities in the city. The older brother, Eliyahu Werdesheim, was found guilty of false imprisonment and second degree assault Thursday afternoon, and his younger brother Avi, was cleared of all charges.
Anthony McCarthy co-hosts a panel on the verdict and the effects of this case in Baltimore communities.
