Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Indicted on Perjury Charges

In Summary

Mosby, who gained national attention for indicting cops involved in Freddi Gray’s death, was indicted by a grand jury.  

Baltimore’s top prosecutor, Marilyn Mosby, was indicted on two charges of perjury by a federal grand jury on Thursday.   

Mosby was also charged on two counts of making false statements on a loan application to buy two vacation homes in Florida, court documents revealed.   

“I remain confident that once all the evidence is presented, that she will prevail against these bogus charges—charges that are rooted in personal, political and racial animus five months from her election,” her attorney A. Scott Bolden told CNN in a statement.   

Mosby was thrust onto the national stage in 2015 when she charged police officers for the death of Freddie Gray, who was in their custody at the time.

When signing for two loans against her retirement plan, she said on the forms she “experienced adverse financial consequences” because of COVID-19, CNN reported. According to the indictment, Mosby earned over $247,000 in 2020, more than she did in 2019.   

According to CNN, she received $81,000 in 2020 from her retirement accounts.   

Marcia Murphy, a spokesperson for Maryland U.S. Attorney Erek Barron, told CNN that the indictment “speaks for itself,” and the office won’t be commenting on anything beyond the charges.   

If convicted, Mosby faces up to five years in federal prison for each count of perjury and a maximum of 30 years for each count for making a false statement, as reported by CNN. She could also be forced to give up any property she bought through fraudulent means.
