Freel was a district judge in Gotham City who presided over the trial of Sal Maroni. Prosecuting district attorney Harvey Dent called Rossi as a witness to testify against Maroni, but the witness changed his statement at the last minute and claimed he was behind the Gotham crime empire. Dent requested permission to treat Rossi as hostile, which Freel granted, but Rossi then pulled a gun on the DA. Rossi was restrained and Freel ordered him out of the room, but Dent protested, saying he "wasn't done".
