Breaking: Ex-Baltimore Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Handed Sentence for Perjury and Mortgage Fraud

Published on

Marilyn Mosby, a former Baltimore, Maryland prosecutor, received her sentence on Thursday for her convictions of mortgage fraud and perjury.

She was not sent to prison in her Thursday sentence for perjury, mortgage fraud, and other crimes. She had gained national attention for accusing police officers of a Black man’s death.

Marilyn Mosby was sentenced to 12 months in home confinement and 100 hours of community work, as well as three years of supervision.

Mosby hugged supporters after the adjournment of the hearing. Some applauded the judge’s sentence.

The sentence is not out of line for what appears to be a white collar crime. Mosby has consistently maintained her innocence in all cases:

Mosby was found guilty of faking her financial situation to withdraw early from her retirement fund during the COVID-19 epidemic, and claiming fraudulently that $5,000 she received from her husband at closing on a Florida condo.

Mosby, 44 years old, maintains her innocence. She refused to speak with U.S. district judge Lydia Kay Griggsby until she learned her sentence. Her attorneys said that they would appeal and seek a pardon from the president while seeking an appeal.

The judge told Mosby that it was a sad day both for her and her family. Griggsby said that it was a sad day not only for Mosby but also the city of Baltimore. Mosby had displayed a pattern of dishonesty while holding a public position.

In May, the NAACP asked for a pardon from President Obama.

The prosecution had asked for a prison sentence in Mosby’s trial:

Griggsby asked Assistant U.S. attorney Sean Delaney a question when he argued in favor of a 20-month prison sentence. She asked, “Are there any victims? Who are they?”

“It’s a good question, your honor,” Delaney responded. “I get it. This isn’t an embezzlement case.”

Delaney stated that it is harmful to the public when an official lies under oath. “All citizens suffer when their public officials are lying,” he said.

Delaney denied the claims of Mosby’s supporters, that she was a victim of selective prosecuting and claimed she had lied repeatedly about her case and how prosecutors handled it.

Delaney stated that “These lies show that Marilyn Mosby has no remorse, and that she does not care about the truth.”

Mosby was found guilty of withdrawing $90,000.00 from her Baltimore deferred-compensation plan in order to pay down payments for vacation homes in Florida. Prosecutors maintained that she had falsely claimed the COVID-19 epidemic affected a side business, “travel oriented”, she operated while she served as prosecutor. The mortgage fraud charge stemmed from a $5,000 gift letter she submitted when applying for a loan for one of her Florida properties. She claimed that the money was from her husband but it was actually her own money.

Mosby’s lawyers have stated that they plan to appeal her conviction in the meantime, while waiting for a pardon from the president.
