Former top prosecutor in Baltimore avoids prison for mortgage fraud and perjury

Former Baltimore City Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby Sentenced for Perjury and Mortgage Fraud

In a shocking turn of events, former Baltimore city prosecutor Marilyn Mosby has been spared prison time in her sentence for perjury and mortgage fraud. The Democratic former State’s Attorney, who gained national attention for charging police officers in the death of Freddie Gray, was sentenced to 12 months of home confinement, 100 hours of community service, and three years of supervised release.

Mosby, 44, was convicted of lying about her finances to make early withdrawals from retirement funds during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as fraudulently claiming that her own $5,000 was a gift from her then-husband as she closed on a Florida condominium. Despite maintaining her innocence, Mosby now faces the consequences of her actions.

The sentencing hearing was an emotional one, with Mosby hugging her supporters and expressing gratitude for their continued support. However, the judge made it clear that Mosby’s actions had consequences not only for her and her family but also for the city of Baltimore. The judge noted that Mosby displayed a “pattern of dishonesty” while serving in a public office, which ultimately led to her downfall.

While some argue that Mosby is a victim of selective prosecution, prosecutors maintain that she has shown no remorse for her actions and has repeatedly lied about the case. The judge ultimately decided to spare Mosby from prison, citing the impact it would have on her two young daughters.

Despite the outcome of the sentencing, Mosby’s supporters continue to stand by her side, urging the judge to show leniency. They argue that Mosby’s crimes had no real victims and were unrelated to her public office. Mosby has even applied for a presidential pardon, with the Congressional Black Caucus expressing support for her cause.

The case of Marilyn Mosby serves as a reminder of the consequences of dishonesty and the importance of upholding the law, even for those in positions of power. As the story continues to unfold, it raises questions about justice, accountability, and the complexities of public service.
