*Former Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby was convicted Thursday in a perjury case tied to a COVID-related loan application. 

Mosby was indicted on federal charges in 2022 after allegedly falsely claiming a COVID-19 hardship on applications to withdraw $90,000 from the city’s deferred compensation plan. Prosecutors claim she improperly accessed retirement funds to use as down payments to buy two homes in Florida.

Mosby, who served two terms as state’s attorney for Baltimore, allegedly used the COVID crisis to get a distribution under the federal CARES Act, claiming she experienced “adverse financial consequences from the coronavirus as a result of being quarantined, furloughed, or laid off; having reduced work hours; being unable to work due to lack of childcare; or the closing or reduction of hours of a business she owned or operated.”

The Feds charge that Mosby did not experience any financial hardships while she received her full salary of $247,955 from Jan. 1 through Dec. 29, 2020, per the report. 

According to Mosby’s lawyer, she was legally entitled to withdraw the money and spend the funds however she wanted, The Huffington Post reports.  

One of Mosby’s ex-attorneys previously called the charges “bogus” and “rooted in personal, political and racial animus.” 

“We will fight these charges vigorously, and I remain confident that once all the evidence is presented, that she will prevail against these bogus charges — charges that are rooted in personal, political and racial animus five months from her election,” said Mosby’s former lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, previously in a statement.

After a trial that began Monday, a federal jury convicted Mosby of two counts of perjury.

“This case is about a lawyer and a public servant who placed her own selfish interests above the truth,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sean Delaney told jurors on Monday, per The Huff Post.
