She was a radical through and through and her tenure was disastrous for a once-great American city.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, a court has just determined that she is a liar and a thief.
Now, Baltimore’s former prosecutor Marilyn Mosby was just found guilty on federal charges.
A promising future was completely squandered
Marilyn Mosby assumed public office in 2015 as the youngest District Attorney to preside over any major American city.
Having accomplished this feat at just 34 years old, she seemed to have a promising future ahead of her.
It wasn’t long before her true colors emerged, however.
Mosby was wrong for the job in just about every imaginable way
When Freddie Gray died in police custody in 2015, rioting and protests spread like wildfire across Baltimore.
Instead of showing leadership and forcing an end to the violence, she charged six officers with crimes ranging from second-degree murder to involuntary manslaughter.
Those charges were later dropped and Mosby was sued for false arrest, false imprisonment, and defamation for her overreach.
Mosby announced a moratorium on all prosecutions related to marijuana possession, then expanded this moratorium on prosecutions to prostitution, minor traffic violations, and most low-level offenses, including trespassing.
Predictably, crime rates soared and Baltimore turned into yet another far-left Democrat-run hellscape with over 300 homicides every year between 2015 and 2021 during her tenure.
Now it turns out that she’s not merely bad at her job; she’s a criminal as well, having been convicted on federal perjury counts.
According to prosecutors, Mosby lied about a COVID-19 financial hardship to illegally withdraw $90,000 from a restricted city retirement account.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Zelinsky said during closing arguments, “Telling the truth matters. It matters for all of us. When it came to accessing the restricted retirement account the defendant believed … telling the truth didn’t matter. The evidence shows that she twice committed perjury in accessing funds that were solely the property of the city of Baltimore for the purpose of her own private gain. When the world was suffering, Ms. Mosby took advantage . . . to purchase $1 million worth of Florida vacation homes.”
He continued, saying, “Mosby’s travel business produced no income, it had no customers, no emails, no vendors, no notes, no business plan. Use your common sense. Does that sound like an open and operable business to you? No, it doesn’t … because it wasn’t.”

The guilty verdict that was delivered by the jury was a long time in coming.
Mosby’s trial was postponed several times, including in April 2022, September 2022.
Another delay occurred this year when a federal judge allowed all six of Mosby’s defense attorneys to withdraw from the case.
After that a public defender was appointed, and the trial was moved to October 2023.
Mosby faces a maximum sentence of five years in federal prison for each of the two counts of perjury.
