BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted Baltimore’s top prosecutor on charges of perjury and making false mortgage applications in the purchase of two Florida vacation homes.
The Maryland-based U.S. Attorney’s Office announced the four-count indictment Thursday. It alleges Marilyn Mosby lied about meeting qualifications for coronavirus-related distributions from a city retirement plan in 2020.
Federal prosecutors also allege the 41-year-old prosecutor lied on 2020 application forms for mortgages to purchase a home and condominium in two Florida locations.
Mosby’s attorney said in a statement that they would vigorously fight what he called “bogus charges” and that they were confident she would prevail.
