There's no doubt that Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby craves the spotlight.
Hours before she announced murder charges against six Baltimore officers in the death of Freddie Gray, the Ciara lookalike reportedly called her mom to tell her she was about to be on CNN.
Mosby, who was abandoned by her father, was raised by a single mother. So it comes as no surprise that she sought out the spotlight while she was still in college.
The then 20-year-old law student sued a neighbor for throwing an unauthorized baby shower for his pregnant wife in Mosby's off-campus apartment.
The producers at Judge Judy chose the case to be tried in front of TV's Judge Judy -- and Mosby won a $2,000 judgment.
From NY Daily News:
A Mosby spokeswoman confirmed her appearance on the show in 2000, when the current top prosecutor was an undergraduate at Tuskegee University in Alabama.
Mosby had left her four-bedroom Tuskegee apartment for three months during the summer break and returned in the fall to find her door broken down and the residence trashed, she recounted on the popular show.
Like a good lawyer, Mosby brought along photo evidence of the damage. The apartment was “filthy,” Mosby said of returning in August.
“It was total disrespect,” she told Judge Judy. “Basically, my apartment was a wreck.”
Johnson, the neighbor, told the court that someone had broken into the building and he had no idea what had happened.
But Johnson’s wife was pregnant and Mosby found “baby decorations” and other “evidence of a baby shower” inside her locked bedroom.
“You think a burglar would make a baby shower?” an incredulous Judge Judy asked the defendant, Johnson, during the show.
“Mr. Johnson, what you did to this young woman was wrong,” she said. “You figured she is a college student, she has no way of fighting back, she has nothing else to do … You took advantage of her.”
