Prior to the Trial, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and the Feds File Opposing Documents in the Perjury Case

The United States Attorney for the District of Maryland, who is leading the prosecution of Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on charges of perjury and making false mortgage applications to purchase two vacation homes, detailed Mosby’s financial situation and responded to the embattled prosecutor’s attempt to strike the word “hardship” from proceedings.

Mosby is being tried on the charges of perjury and making false mortgage applications to purchase the two vacation homes.

Mosby entered a not guilty plea earlier this year to the four-count indictment, which alleges that she claimed “adverse financial consequences” related to the COVID-19 pandemic to withdraw $90,000 from her city retirement account and that she then used the funds to place down payments on two vacation homes in Florida.

Mosby is accused of doing this. The indictment states that she is accused of doing this.

Despite Mosby’s claims that she would suffer financial hardships as a result of withdrawing money from her retirement account, her salary as state’s attorney will increase from $141,450 in 2019 to $151,268 in 2020.

According to the documents filed with the court, she also received additional “miscellaneous” compensation for more than 10,000 dollars in the year 2020.


Marilyn Mosby, the State’s Attorney for the city of Baltimore, gives a statement to the media a day after she was indicted on federal perjury charges. The event took place outside of her office.

Prosecutors allege that Mosby “exploited” provisions in the CARES Act to withdraw money from her retirement accounts early, including $40,000 in May 2020 and an additional $50,000 in December 2020. This is even though Mosby received her full salary.

In a filing that was submitted on Friday, the prosecution stated that “simply put, [Mosby’s] perjury allowed her to leverage $90,000 in funds she should not have had access to purchase two vacation properties.”

The government also alleges that Mosby “did not disclose that she owed significant amounts of federal taxes” on the two mortgage applications that she submitted.

According to the documents, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) filed a tax lien against her for $45,022 in March of 2020.

In the meantime, attorneys for Mosby have repeated previous claims that the federal prosecutors have a bias against Mosby.

“As noted in State’s Attorney Mosby’s first motion to dismiss the indictment, members of the prosecution team have historically been biased against her,” her attorneys wrote in their motion to dismiss the indictment.

“There is a strong likelihood that the breadth and scope of the government’s past investigations—and the animus that fueled them—will come through in its own presentation of evidence,” the motion continued.

Additionally, Mosby is attempting to have the word “hardship” removed from the proceedings of the case; however, the prosecution argued in documents that were submitted the week prior that the “use of the term is neither inflammatory nor prejudicial.”

On Wednesday, the attorneys representing Mosby did not respond to a request for comment that had been made.

The United States Attorney’s Office did not want to comment on the matter, and a spokesperson for the office referred all questions about the case to the documents that were filed in court.

Ivan Bates, who had previously worked as a prosecutor in Baltimore from 1996 until 2002 before switching over to the defence side, defeated Mosby in the race for reelection last month.
