On January 14, 2022, Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby was federally indicted on four charges, including alleged perjury for falsely claiming a COVID-19 hardship on applications to withdraw $90,000 from her retirement account. It was a move prosecutors allege that allowed her penalty free withdrawals—a policy meant for those experiencing COVID hardships.

The reporting from Fox45 Baltimore detailed the charges.

The feds charged Mosby with two counts of perjury and two counts of making false statements on mortgage loan applications. Those two mortgages were for a home in Kissimmee, Fla., and a condo in Long Boat Key, Fla.

According to prosecutors, Mosby failed to disclose a $45,022 federal tax lien on her and her husband on both of the applications. Her defense attorney claims she couldn’t have lied because she didn’t know the lien existed.

It’s alleged that Mosby represented that the house in Kissimmee would be used as a personal vacation home to get a lower interest rate on the mortgage, However, a week before, she signed documents turning over control of the property to a vacation home management company.

Regarding the perjury charges, prosecutors allege she lied on paperwork for a $40,000 and a $50,000 withdrawal from her retirement account — certifying that she faced financial hardship from the pandemic. However, records show she continued to collect her biweekly pay for her $247,955 salary without any interruption for the entirety of 2020.

It’s alleged that Mosby used the $90,000 withdrawn from her retirement account to invest in two properties in Florida.

Maybe Mosby is telling the truth, and she’s really innocent. Of course, she’s the top law enforcement officer in Baltimore and a lawyer by training.
