The lawyer representing women who said maintenance workers demanded sex from them in exchange for basic repairs at public housing units in Baltimore says a settlement of at least $6 million has been reached.

Cary J. Hansel said at a news conference Friday that all victims of sexual harassment in public housing will be eligible for the settlement. Hansel said the settlement amount will range from $6 million to $7.95 million, depending on how many join the lawsuit.

A Baltimore judge is postponing for several days the January trial of a police officer charged with second-degree murder in the death of Freddie Gray.

The Maryland Judiciary issued a statement Monday saying Officer Caesar Goodson's trial will begin Jan. 11 instead of Jan. 6.

On Jan. 6, Circuit Judge Barry Williams will consider pretrial motions. Prosecutors recently filed three such motions, including one seeking to bar the defense from offering evidence about Gray's criminal record before his arrest last April.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Barry Williams denied motions for a mistrial Monday in the case against Officer William Porter, accused in the death last April of Freddie Gray.

Defense attorneys said they learned over the weekend that Gray, who died of a broken neck, told a Baltimore police officer a month earlier that he had a back injury.

Prosecutors said they did not learn of the statement until Monday morning when they were notified by two assistant state’s attorneys.
