Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby Indicted for Perjury,

Today’s indictment can be viewed here. The Baltimore Sun (Justin Fenton & Tim Prudente) reports:

Indictment claims that Mosby (41), sought to withdraw $40,000 from her city retirement account May 2020. She claimed that she suffered a financial setback because of the pandemic. In fact, her salary had increased by $10,000 to $248,000.

“Mosby had not experienced adverse financial consequences stemming from the coronavirus as a result of ‘being quarantined, furloughed or laid off’ or ‘having reduced work hours’ or ‘due to lack of childcare’ or ‘the closing or reduction of hours of a business I own or operate'”—all perquisites for obtaining the loan, which Mosby attested to under penalty of perjury, the indictment says.

Indictment states that Mosby obtained $36,000 which she put towards a downpayment on a Orlando rental property. Prosecutors claim that Mosby lied to federal tax authorities about her purchase of the property and claimed it was a second residence, which lowers the interest rate.

Because of the past reporting on Mosby asking for an investigation by FCC into a station that criticizes her, I was drawn to this indictment.
