Replacement Indictment Filed Against Baltimore’s Top Lawyer | Maryland News

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal prosecutors filed a superseding indictment Thursday against Baltimore’s top prosecutor on charges that she made false statements on financial documents to take money from her savings- retirement to buy two vacation homes in Florida.

A brief statement from the US Attorney’s office said the changes added details that were not in the original indictment against Marilyn Mosby. Prosecutors said they would have no further comment.

On Jan. 13, a grand jury indicted Mosby on two counts of perjury and misrepresentation on a loan application to purchase a house in Kissimmee, Florida, and a condominium in Long Boat Key. , in Florida.

Mosby pleaded not guilty to the charges when he was arraigned on Feb. 4. His trial is expected to last four days. Prosecutors did not seek Mosby’s pretrial detention.

Mosby, 41, was elected Baltimore State’s Attorney in 2014 and re-elected in 2018. She received national acclaim in 2015 for bringing criminal charges against six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, a black man whose the neck was broken in custody. Gray’s death sparked protests and riots. None of the officers have been convicted.

The indictment accuses Mosby of falsely stating that the COVID-19 pandemic had hurt her finances so she could withdraw $90,000 from her city retirement account. Mosby’s gross salary in 2020 was over $247,000 and was never reduced, according to the indictment.

Bolden said the state of Mosby’s fledgling private businesses — Mahogany Elite Travel, Mahogany Elite Enterprises LLC and Mahogany Elite Consulting — allowed him to make the withdrawals.

Mosby is married to Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby, who has not been charged with any crime.
