Key takeaways:

  • Marilyn Mosby, former Baltimore state’s attorney, was convicted of two counts of perjury

  • The jury reached a verdict on Thursday and it is unclear what sentence Mosby will face for the perjury charges

On Thursday, a federal jury convicted former Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby of two counts of perjury. The charges stem from Mosby’s alleged misuse of retirement funds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mosby had been indicted by a federal grand jury before she was defeated in a Democratic primary last year. She had served two terms as state’s attorney for Baltimore and gained a national profile for prosecuting Baltimore police officers after the death of Freddie Gray in 2015.

The charges against Mosby allege that she lied about the finances of a side business to improperly access retirement funds. She is accused of using the money to buy two Florida homes.

The trial began on Monday and the jury reached a verdict on Thursday. Mosby was accompanied by her husband, Nick Mosby, and her lawyers when she arrived at federal court in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

The verdict marks the end of a long legal battle for Mosby. It is unclear what sentence she will face for the perjury charges.
