Maryland’s top cop Marilyn Mosby was indicted for lying on mortgage loan applications for two vacation properties she purchased in Florida.
Mosby, a Democrat, was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of perjury and making false statements on mortgage loan applications, Yahoo News reported. The indictment was unsealed on Thursday.
The indictment alleges the mom-of-two lied about experiencing “adverse financial consequences” during the pandemic in 2020.
Federal prosecutors say her gross salary of nearly $250,000 increased by nearly $10,000 between 2019 and 2020.
The indictment also alleges that Mosby lied on a COVID relief application. She claimed she lost income during the pandemic and received $36,000, which she used “toward a down payment for a vacation home in Kissimmee Florida” in September 2020.
The indictment accuses Mosby of lying on applications for mortgages of nearly $500,000 for the Kissimmee, Florida, home and a nearly $430,000 mortgage for a condominium in Long Boat Key, Florida.
Mosby faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for each count of perjury and a maximum of 30 years for each count of making false mortgage applications.
Mosby, 41, gained notoriety in 2015 for prosecuting five Baltimore police officers who arrested 25-year-old Freddie Gray in 2015.
Gray was found unresponsive in the back of a paddy wagon. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
The five officers were eventually acquitted of all charges.
